    Hi Schwerepunkt :)

    It is likely you have parasites, spyware, adware, malware, or hijackware on
    your system causing the problem, which your antivirus will not detect, as it
    does not have the same definitions.

    :It is a good rule of thumb that, when you have a problem with some form of
    junkware on your system, that you make a clean sweep with all programs to be
    sure there are no others lurking on your system to show up as well. It is
    simply good protection maintenace for your machine.

    Download and install, then you *MUST* update the programs prior to running
    to be sure they have the latest definitions, then run the programs below.
    They are free and very effective. Be sure to run both SpyBot and Adaware,
    as what one does not detect the other may. It is important that you do all
    the steps and follow all directions carefully:

    Before you try to remove spyware using any of the programs below, download a
    copy of LSPFIX from any of the following sites:

    http://www.spychecker.com/program/winsockxpfix.html (if your OS is Win2k or
    XP) The process of removing certain malware may kill your internet
    connection. If this should occur, this program, LSPFIX, will enable you to
    regain your connection.

    Also, get a copy of WINSOCKFIX available at:

    It is important that you run the programs in the order that they are listed
    here. The first three programs will clear your machine of all other items so
    that you can have a clear HiJackThis Log for the experts to read and analyze
    for you.

    CWShredder: Free

    SpyBot Search & Destroy: Free

    AdAware: Free

    HiJackThis: - Free

    Unzip the Download file in a NEW FOLDER that you can create before you start
    the download.
    DO NOT install in your Desktop folder.
    DO NOT use any of the TEMP folders that are presently in your computer.
    Double-click "HijackThis.exe" and Press "Scan".

    Go to:
    http://computercops.biz/downloads-cat-14.html ,
    (If you get a 404 error or Access denied, try:

    and download HiJackThis to the new folder. Unzip to a folder other than your
    Desktop or the Temp folder, doubleclick HiJackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

    When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log"
    button. Press that, save the log some place you remember where it is.
    Most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so DO NOT fix
    anything yet.

    Open the copy of your log in NotePad and make a copy. Then you can go here
    to post you log:

    Jim Eshelman's site here:
    AumHa Forums - HiJackThis section:


    You will need to register to open a new thread to post you log. It is free,
    and no one will Spam you, it is one of many that provides this service. Once
    registered, go to the HiJackThis section on the forum list and click to
    open. Then start a new post and post your log. The experts there will
    analyze the log and report back the results. Please allow at least a few
    hours or a days time for a response, depending on when you post the log

    Remember, you must return to the HJT site to get your answer. It is a good
    idea to click the "Notify" box so that you will get an electronic
    notification by e-mail to let you know when a response has been posted.
    But, you must still return to the site of your answer
