Welcome ever looking up :thumbsup:

First of all i cannot see any signs of any virus protection installed,or a firewall.

Download\install one of the following antivirus programs please:

AVG7 Free Edition Antivirus:
http://free.grisoft.com/softw/70free/setup...ree_430a848.exe
Avast! 4 Home Edition:
http://files.avast.com/iavs4pro/setupeng.exe
Active Virus Shield
There's a nice setup tutorial Here.
http://www.activevirusshield.com/antivirus/freeav/

Once you've installed one of the above,update it's virus definitions online,then run a full system virus scan.

***************************

If you do require a firewall,download\install one of these:

Sygate Personal Firewall Free Edition:
http://www.filehippo.com/download_sygate_personal_firewall/
Zone Alarm Free:
http://download.zonelabs.com/bin/free/1001..._737_000_en.exe
Comodo Personal Firewall:
http://www.personalfirewall.comodo.com/

***************************

Once you've finished above,download SDFix and save it to your desktop.
http://downloads.andymanchesta.com/RemovalTools/SDFix.zip

Please then reboot your computer into Safe Mode by doing the following :

* Restart your computer
* After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
* Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu with options should appear;
* Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press "Enter".
* Choose your usual account.

* In Safe Mode, right click the SDFix.zip folder and choose Extract All,
* Open the extracted folder and double click RunThis.bat to start the script.
* Type Y to begin the script.
* It will remove the Trojan Services then make some repairs to the registry and prompt you to press any key to Reboot.
* Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
* Your system will take longer that normal to restart as the fixtool will be running and removing files.
* When the desktop loads the Fixtool will complete the removal and display Finished, then press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.
* Finally open the SDFix folder on your desktop and copy and paste the contents of the results file Report.txt into your next reply.Also post a new Hijackthis log please.
