Use "HijackThis Tool" to fix the problems

Look for O11 code ( Extra group in IE 'Advanced Options' window ) on the HijackThis Log and check it to repair. Here is a HijackThis log tutorial for more details..

HiJack this is an advanced tool and you must know what you are doing in order to use it. Many of the entries are essential for your computer to run and you could break your system by fixing the wrong thing.

Generally, fixing the entries is done only after the malware has been removed. Removing them before hand could very well prevent someone from identifying the culprit.

Instead, I suggest following the guide found here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/

After following all the steps, post your HiJack This log in this forum, not here. After posting the log, please do not make any further changes to your system, adding or deleting software, attempted fixes etc. as this will make it more difficult for the team to help you.

Please be patient as the HJT team is very busy. Do not bump your log as the team may assume that someone is helping you. If you do not have a response in five days add a response to this topic and paste in the link to your log in that post.
