I made use of your services earlier this year and am back. You saved my rear end. I was away for a few days and came back to a major hit on my computer. When I booted this morning Pest Patrol (which I had on before finding you) warned me of pests. There were a large number of them. Some in the Windows Registry. However, it could not remove them. Other were in other places and could not be removed as well. I used Spybot and AdAware and they did not remove things as well. Norton Anti-Virus had the same problem. The last time you had me copy the Windows Registry and send it to you. You then told me what to remover. Of course I have forgoten how to do that. Can you help me out?

Before we have to do anything that extreme, let's take a look at a hijackthis log. Please follow the instructions at this link.

Posted Image If I have helped you in any way, please consider a donation to help me continue the fight against malware.

Failing to respond back to the person that is giving up their own time to help you not only is insensitive and disrespectful, but it guarantees that you will never receive help from me again. Please thank your helpers and there will always be help here when you need it!
