    Hi irieali,

    Before you start, please unzip hijackthis to a separate folder. The program will make backups in the folder in the folder it's in.
    These easily get lost in a Temp folder.

    Check the items listed below in HijackThis, close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

    Download and run: http://www.spywareinfoforum.com/~merijn/files/CWShredder.exe
    Use the Fix button and follow the instructions you will receive.

    Then reboot and see if you can find and mail me a (preferably zipped) copy of:
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\svchost.exe
    Use the address in my profile please.

    The real svchost.exe lives here C:\WINNT\System32\svchost.exe

    Regards,

    Pieter
