    Hi there, and what is that instal.htm?
    That sounds suspicous in that place.
    Can you please look in [thread]15913[/thread] step #2 for posting your HijackThis log in that same forum and see what the experts might find for you? Also it would be appreciated if you zip the file and keep it untill we know if any of the developers wants it to be submitted to them.
    If the file was in your Temporary Internet Files folder i would have said "clean the caches and it should be gone"
    but now we don't know how that html page came in that location it's better to let the experts look if there might be more.

    Looking forward what the experts might further advice you.
