Hello Martin Clayden
HijackThis identifies this as an 020 object...
Who advised you to download and use Hijackthis? Are you trained in its use? If not, you should know that HijackThis is an advanced tool
that requires advanced knowledge about the Windows Operating System. Most of the log entries are required
to run a computer and removing essential ones can potentially cause serious damage
such as your Internet no longer working or problems with running Windows itself. You should NOT fix anything yourself
without consulting a expert as to what to fix.
With that said, I get basically the same results from my investigation but those asking for help seem to have other malware present. What type of anti-virus are you using and when was the last time you ran a scan? Have you performed any anti-spyware scans? Have your tried doing your scans in "SAFE MODE
"? Try this first. If not success, then do the following:Download and scan with SUPERAntiSypware
Free for Home UsersIf you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download and unzip them from here.Download and scan with AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5
in "SAFE MODE
".(This is Ewdio 4.0 renamed. If you already have Ewido installed, please update to this version which has a special "clean driver" for removing persistent malware.)
Be sure to print out the AVG Anti-Spyware Install-Scan Instructions
and read the User Manual
Then perform this online Virus scan
: Trend Micro Housecall
<- Use "Autoclean" and manually delete what it can't clean
