Please post the contents of the log into a reply, dont make it an attachment next time :thumbsup: Thanks

Print out these instructions and then close all windows including Internet Explorer.

Then I want you to fix some of those entries. Please do the following:

Please make sure that you can view all hidden files. Instructions on how to do this can be found here:

How to see hidden files in Windows

Run Hijackthis again, click scan, and Put a checkmark next to each of these. Then click the Fix button:

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = about:blank
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyOverride = *new-search.net*;*x-google.net*
O1 - Hosts: search.netscape.com12.129.205.209 sitefinder.verisign.com
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {46858BEF-3228-3786-0233-3E36229EFCC3} - C:\WINDOWS\System32\qarm.dll
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Parallel Tasking] C:\Program Files\Parallel Tasking\ptask.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [lmu] C:\WINDOWS\LMU.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Suba] C:\Documents and Settings\Evan Shiu\Application Data\acrs.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Fklpghn] C:\WINDOWS\System32\??rvices.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Clock] C:\WINDOWS\mmc.exe

Reboot your computer into Safe Mode

Then delete these files or directories (Do not be concerned if they do not exist)

C:\Program Files\Parallel Tasking\
C:\Documents and Settings\Evan Shiu\Application Data\acrs.exe

Reboot your computer to go back to normal mode and post a new log.
