1. Clear the infection from your computer
2. Set your system clock forwards by 20 years.
3. Connect to the internet and get reinfected
4. Set your date time back to the current date and clear the infection.
This is based on the fact that some browser hijacks work on a timer and will
only try to reinfect your computer a day after the last infection.
If this works it doesn't mean you have cleared all of the infection from your computer.
You also need to download a program called FindnFix and use it to delete the locked
dll file that keeps trying to reinfect your PC.
Also you don't need to use Internet Explorer. You could try downloading the
Mozilla browser and using that instead and you may find that all your browser
problems magically disappear.

Right-click My Computer
Click the System Restore(tab)
Click checkbox Turn off System Restore
(or checkbox Turn Off System Restore on all drives)
Click Yes when prompted to turn off System Restore
Before you reboot into Safe Mode do a Panda scan here...
...Scan your PC(button).
If the Panda scan shows infections in the RECYCLER folder (hidden folder) you'll
need to delete them in Safe Mode in a command prompt. Panda will show the
paths of anything it finds.
