for some rather bizarre reason my computer had started to open a strange website called ''gameroover'' upon startup.

So I looked into this further using Hijack this and found the following : 

''O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Babakan] cmd.exe /k if %date:~6,4%%date:~3,2%%date:~0,2% LEQ 20131027 (exit) else (start Mod Edit:  Removed link - Hamluis.


But I have no clue on how to remove this, any help would be gladly appreciated.  I tried to fix it in Hijack this, but that did not help. 

Thank you very much.

You may post your HJT llog, along with the requested DDS log, at BC Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/forum22.html .  The folks there will assist you in determining what's up, since malware topics are not worked in the Windows 7 forum.

I am only finding that startup entry on non-English sites so I don't have any information on it. If you don't want a specific program or scheduled task to run at startup you can either disable it in MSConfig or disable/delete the entry using a third-party utility.

Please download AutoRuns and save it to your Desktop.
  • Create a new folder on your hard drive called AutoRuns (C:\AutoRuns) and extract (unzip) the file there.
  • Open the folder and double-click on autoruns.exe to launch it.
    Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • Please be patient as it scans and populates the entries.
  • When finished scanning, it will say Ready at the bottom and list all entries under the Everything tab.
  • In the top menu, click File > Find... and type the file name of the startup you want to remove, then click Find Next.
  • Alternatively, you can scroll through the list and look for any entry related to the file you need to remove.
  • If found, right-click on the entry and choose delete.
  • Exit Autoruns and reboot your computer when done.
