    Just save the HT log somewhere, open it in Notepad, copy its contents and paste them into your reply.

    Start your computer in Safe Mode (it may help if you print this out), and delete:

    C:\WINDOWS\c_pan.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\shman.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\lsass.exe

    NOTE: To avoid the risk of any of the above not being found due to them having the 'Hidden' attribute, first make sure that in Folder Options > View hidden and operating system files are set to show.

    Next, still in Safe Mode, run Hijack This, and have it fix these items:

    O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {ACB1E670-3217-45C4-A021-6B829A8A27CB} - (no file)

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Runner] C:\WINDOWS\lsass.exe /i
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [browser] C:\WINDOWS\c_pan.exe /i
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SystemService] C:\WINDOWS\shman.exe /i



    Now start your computer normally, and please post a fresh log.

    Re: hotxxx New log

    It's a clean log; the Lsass.exe, smss.exe and svchost.exe in your System32 folder are Windows system files, and they should be left alone.

    Happy surfing! :)
