Themustangsource,

You may want to print this out or save it to a Notepad file on your desktop, as you will not have Internet access in Safe mode.
This is fairly long due to a difficult infection. Your persistence is needed to be successful .
You should find it fairly straightforward, however, and this sequence will fix your machine.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Use Add/Remove Programs In Control Panel
From Start, Settings, Control Panel or Start, Control Panel, click Add/Remove Programs.
Highlight each Entry, as follows, one by one, if it exists, and choose Remove :
Market Browser
Take extra care in answering questions posed by any Uninstaller. Some questions may be worded to deceive you into Keeping the program.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Set Your Computer to Show All Files
Go to My Computer->Tools/View->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that Show hidden files and folders (or 'Show all files') is enabled. Also make sure that Display the contents of system folders is checked. In addition, if you have Windows XP, go to Start, Search. When you click on All files and folders on the left pane, click on the More advanced options at the bottom. Make sure that Search system folders, Search hidden files and folders, and Search subfolders are checked.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Please download, install, and update the free trial version of Ewido trojan scanner: from here : http://www.ewido.net/en/download/

* Install ewido security suite
* When installing, under "Additional Options", Uncheck "Install background guard" and Uncheck "Install scan via context menu".
* Launch ewido, there should now be an icon on your desktop. Double-click it.
* The program will go to its main screen
* On the left hand side of the main screen click Update.
* Then click on Start Update.
The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
If you are having problems with the updater, you can also use the same download link http://www.ewido.net/en/download/ to manually update ewido.
Don't Run Ewido Yet. We will run it later in Safe Mode.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Please Download SpyAxeFix.exe © noahdfear.
