    Hi Heath,

    Both AdAWare and Spybot S&D should be able to relieve you from that malware.

    So download Spybot - Search & Destroy
    After installing, first press Online, and search for, put a check mark at, and install all updates.
    Next, close all IE windows, hit 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove all it marks in red.

    Or, download Ad-Aware at lavasoft.usa.com
    After installing AAW, and before running the program, update by using the Globe icon.
    Shut down and restart Ad-Aware.
    Now press "Scan Now", "Select drives\folders to scan" and select the active partition (usually C: ), then 'next', and let Ad-Aware scan your drives.
    It will find a number of "bad" files and registry keys. Click 'Next' again.
    Rightclick in that pane and choose "select all" and click 'next'.
    It will ask you whether you'd like to remove all checked items. Click OK.
    Finally, close Ad-Aware, and reboot.

    If that doesn't work for some reason:
    Could you post your HijackThis log
    Download, Unzip and run HijackThis. Then click Scan > Save log, save the log as a .txt file and copy & paste its content into your next post.
    Don´t fix anything yet. Most of what it finds is harmless.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    BOTH! They are both strong, but each will detect and eliminate a number of items the other misses. Personally I use Spybot first as it does its work quicker, but my machine is old so I have to think that way.
