it seems that late afternoon onwards is when this spyware is activated, i go to a website and then i click a link (it could be any link) and im redirected to a "page not found", looking similar to the standard windows one, although this gives the option to search the web and click on "topics of interest".

Anyway, ive run Ad-aware and it deleted a whole heap of stuff, im just going to post a HJT log to see if anyone can spot anything else that needs removing.

Go to Add/Remove Programs and remove either of these if they exist,


First create a new folder called C:\HijackThis, extract the HijackThis.exe file from the zip file into the new folder and run it from there. This is necessary to ensure you have backups should anything go wrong.

Detailed instructions on how to Move HJT to C:/HJT/HijackThis

Download CWShredder and run it by pressing FIX, Make sure all windows are closed before doing so.

Check the following in HJT with all windows closed and remove them,

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = file://C:\WINDOWS\System32/left.html

O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {2CF0B992-5EEB-4143-99C0-5297EF71F444} - (no file)

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [RunWindowsUpdate] C:\WINDOWS\uptodate.exe

Navigate to the following and delete it,


Reboot, update Hijackthis to version 1.98.0, rescan and post a fresh log here.
