    Hi bibin. :)

    I recommend you go to http://tomcoyote.org/ and download HiJackThis. Then post your log at one of the malware removal forums. As Wilders is no longer providing this service. Then follow the directions of the expert. Hope this helps. Once your system is clean, you might want to install SpywareBlaster. www.javacoolsoftware.com/products.html Hope this helps.
