Welcome to the Malware Prevention and Security forum here on MSFN!
This snippet of information comes from my own website. Consider this an introduction to Anti-Malware, PC Cleanup and what to do for help with HijackThis.
Before you post your logs please go to this PC Cleanup page to clean your computer. This page is now in a wiki format to allow fast loads and easy to read guidelines for all users, no matter what your Internet speed is.
Be sure to pick up the Anti-Malware Toolkit (*.exe installer) or Anti-Malware Toolkit (*.zip) so that you can get the programs you need to clean your computer!
Follow all of the instructions and upon completion post your log here in the following format:
Username - HijackThis Log #
Should you have further problems you will be asked to do certain things such as running any/all of the applications again and then repost your log. In this case you would post a reply in your own thread with the new log.
By omitting the running of the contents of the Anti-Malware package(s) when posting a log you risk wasting valuable time that could be spent assisting other users.
Startup optimization is also included after all the spyware/adware has been cleaned from your system.
