I have a PestTrap that I can't get rid of! I tried the solution given on this site but it has come back! Everything works fine except that I have this fake pop-up saying that my computer is infected. I used to have problems with my wallpaper (wasn't able to get or change one), but now it's fine (after trying the solution given). I have a full protection with McAfee but it doesn't seem to help the problem. Almost everytime I start my computer, McAfee ask me if I want to delete the PestTrap. Even if I delete it each day, it still comes back!!! Does anyone have an answer for my problem?
Thanks a lot!

I see you have posted an HJT log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/79758/problem-with-pesttrap/

Now that you have a log posted, DO NOT make any further changes to your computer: deleting files, editing the registry, using special fix tools, installing or uninstalling software etc. as this will make it more difficult for the HJT team to help you.

Please be patient as the HJT team is very busy. DO NOT bump your log as the team may think that someone is already helping you. If you have not had a response in five days, add a response to the five days no response topic and paste in the link to your thread.
