Please note that all instructions given are customised for this computer only, the tools used may cause damage if used on a computer with different infections.

If you think you have similar problems, please post a log in the HJT forum and wait for help.


Unless informed of in advance, failure to post replies within 5 days will result in this thread being closed.

Hello and welcome to the forums

My name is Katana and I will be helping you to remove any infection(s) that you may have.

Please observe these rules while we work:
1. If you don't know, stop and ask! Don't keep going on.
2. Please reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.
3. Please continue to respond until I give you the "All Clear"
(Just because you can't see a problem doesn't mean it isn't there)

If you can do those three things, everything should go smoothly :D

I apologize for the delay in responding, but as you can probably see the forums are quite busy
and sometimes a post manages to slip by us.
Unfortunately there are far more people needing help than there are helpers.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

since my last post my system has crashed. first signs of problems was when i kept getting low virtual memory warnings appearing on my system, i checked my virtual memory and saw there was no problem. i had over 2000mb memory left so i could not for the life of me find a problem. I started to get pop-up adverts and no spyware catching software could stop neither could my pop-up blockers. In the end i restarted my system and did a disk check, once finished system tried to reboot,then crashed. i have spent friday night and all day saturday reinstalling everything. I have reloaded highjack this and run scans, i will repost the logs. thankyou
