    first unzip hijackthis to it's own folder not a temporary one as the backups it makes get lost in temp folders

    Run hijackthis, tick these entries listed below and ONLY these entries, double check to make sure, then make sure all browser & email windows are closed and press fix checked

    Reboot into safe mode by following instructions here: http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2001052409420406
    then as some of the files or folders you need to delete may be hidden do this:
    Open Windows Explorer & Go to Tools > Folder Options. Click on the View tab and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked. Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and untick "hide extensions for known file types" . Now click "Apply to all folders"
    Click "Apply" then "OK"

    and Delete these folders
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\PSD Tools
    C:\Program Files\MyWay

    then
    Reboot normally &

    Download and unzip or install these programs/applications if you haven't already got them. If you have them, then make sure they are updated and configured as described

    Spybot - Search & Destroy from http://security.kolla.de
    AdAware 6 from http://www.lavasoft.de/support/download


    Run Sybot S&D

    After installing, first press Online, press search for updates, then tick the updates it finds, then press download updates. Beside the download button is a little down pointed arrow, select one of the servers listed. If it doesn't work or you get an error message then try a different server

    Next, close all Internet Explorer and OE windows, press 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds that is marked in RED.

    then reboot &

    Run ADAWARE

    Before you scan with AdAware, check for updates of the reference file by using the "webupdate".
    the current ref file should read at least 01R279 31.03.2004 or a higher number/later date

    Then ........

    Make sure the following settings are made and on -------"ON=GREEN"
    From main window :Click "Start" then " Activate in-depth scan"

    then......

    click "Use custom scanning options>Customize" and have these options on: "Scan within archives" ,"Scan active processes","Scan registry", "Deep scan registry" ,"Scan my IE Favorites for banned URL" and "Scan my host-files"

    then.........

    go to settings(the gear on top of AdAware)>Tweak>Scanning engine and tick "Unload recognized processes during scanning" ...........then........"Cleaning engine" and "Let windows remove files in use at next reboot"

    then...... click "proceed" to save your settings.

    Now to scan it´s just to click the "Scan" button.

    When scan is finished, mark everything for removal and get rid of it. (Right-click the window and choose"select all" from the drop down menu) then press next and then say yes to the prompt, do you want to remove all these entries.

    reboot again

    then post a new hijackthis log to check what is left

    Hi Orange,

    It looks like you and Derek did a good job as your log is clean now.

    Sweet, thanks. I'm sure you guys get this a lot but you're awesome. You just saved me the arduous task of backing-up and formatting, which is my last card newbie tactical nuke solution. So thanks a ton. Oh and one last question. I was just wondering if you had any general tips on avoiding spyware in the first place. I mean i know some common sense stuff, like i dont trust any net content unless i am absolutely sure of it, i.e off of a very mainstream company website like microsoft. But if you have other tips or any software i should run, the information would be helpful in keeping a newbie like me off of the forums with any future problems. Thanks again. Orange out.

    Hi Orange,

    Here are some things you can read and check into that should help you:

    Some tips and links that will help you stay safe on-line can be found HERE.

    And here is a good read about how to be better protected : Click Me.

    To help keep your system clean, these are also freeware programs that we recommend:
    SpywareBlaster - will protect you from all spy/foistware in it's database by blocking installation of their ActiveX objects.
    SpywareGuard - provides a degree of real-time protection against spyware that is a great addition to SpywareBlaster's protection method.
    IE-Spyad - will put a list of bad domains and sites into the Restricted Site Zone of your IE Browser. This will help protect IE and prevent those drive-by downloads, browser hijacking, ActiveX, Java, popups, cookies, etc, from compromising your computer while you surf.

    And of course, you should have a trusted spyware removal program (I recommend having them both as one may catch what the other may not, since they update at different times):
    Spybot Search&Destroy
    SpybotS&D Setup Tutorial.
    Ad-Aware
    Ad-Aware Setup Tutorial.
    Before scanning with either Ad-Aware or Spybot S&D, remember to bring them up-to-date first.

    Regards,
    Kent
