reboot

hit F8

tab up to safe mode, not safe mode with command prompt, not safe mode with networking, just safe mode

Go to start, run, type msconfig, go to the startup tab, disable everything you see there, click apply or ok but dont reboot yet.

Go into your add/remove and remove any suspious programs in there and after that go to the program files folders and delete the programs folder that you just deleted

Go to the c:\windows\prefetch and delete the whole folder, the folder will return in reboot

now run:
Spybot Search and Destroy and update it and run it as many times as it takes to clear your system of these items

run Adware SE Personal 6, update it, and scan your system the same way as you did SB

Run Microsofts Spyware Remover and do the same thing

Now delete your cookies and temporary internet files

Delete your history

Reboot

go back in safemode and run those programs again

Download msconfig cleanup and cleanup the entries

Download CCleaner and run it

Reboot

then run Hijack this! 1.99 and post your log

I done that to systems with these symtoms. when I get done, a lot of program and windows files are missing. then I have to do a repair. then everything still might not be right. then I end up reformating

I was just trying to save him time by bypassing a few steps
