Hello Everyone!

I am new to this site. This is my first post. I have Winhound.com in my registry. As far as I know, this is all I have. What do I have to do to get rid of this? I have been duped into buying registry cleaners which seemed to claim that they would fix this problem, but yet it still persists.

Please Help :thumbsup:

Ewido will problably get rid of Winhound but how did it get there? More than likely you have more serious malware. So follow the link in TMack's post and post a Hijack this log after following the directions.

As a general rule, if you've got one infection there's a very good chance that there's another. This is because most malware attacks your system in several ways in order to ensure that it can get onto your system.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

Toddsg27,

I moved your HJT log to the appropriate forum.
Here's the link:
Toddsg27's HJT log

NOTE:
Please, DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum, until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies. If you make another post, there will be 1 reply. The team member, glancing over the replies, might think someone is already helping you out, and will not respond. So, just make your post, and let it sit there, until a team member responds. This way you will be taken care of, in the most timely manner.

Also, don't make any changes to your system, as that could change the results of the posted log, making it more difficult to properly clean your system.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to PM me.
