Hi karpi22

My apologies for the delay. If you are still having problems please do this:

1. Make sure McAfee is fully updated with the latest definitions and run it again. Be sure that Interent Explorer is closed.

2. Please run at least two of these online scans:

TrendMicro's HouseCall

You should try to delete any files that these scanners are unable to clean.

3. Make sure AdAware has been updated, configure it for deep scanning and run it.

4. Reboot back into normal mode, then please download, update and run aČ Free anti-trojan

Let it fix whatever it wants to.

5. Scan again with HijackThis and post a new log as a reply to this thread.
