    Hello folks. Ok, it got me. UGGG. I've ran Adaware 6.0 and HiJack This. The symptoms of the infection are my homepage constantly returns to C:\spad\start.html. By the way, I deleted the C:\spad directory from my computer.

    Here's my log file:

    Then download this file https://www.wilderssecurity.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=137184 and save it as spad.reg
    Doubleclcik it and confirm to merge it with the registry.

    Then reboot into safe mode and delete:
    c:\spad <= entire folder
    HPCMDTY.DLL <= most likely in C:\WINDOWS\System32
    c_10230.dll <= most likely in C:\WINDOWS\System32

    Regards,

    Pieter
