    Hi snipper,

    Have only HijackThis running and fix :

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Dial32] C:\WINDOWS\dl.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Dial33] C:\WINDOWS\dlm.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Upgrade Service] C:\WINDOWS\sxchost.exe

    Restart PC after doing so in Safe Mode : Here's How and remove :

    C:\WINDOWS\dl.exe <- this file
    C:\WINDOWS\dlm.exe <- this file
    C:\WINDOWS\sxchost.exe <- this file

    Clean temp internet files

    Restart again in normal mdoe

    Hope this helps

    Cheers,

    Hi Unzy,

    I've followed your instructions (although I couldn't find C:\WINDOWS\sxchost.exe). So far there is no sign of the beast.
    Thanks heaps for your help Unzy

    Hi snipper,

    That's good to hear :)

    Just check with a new hijackthis scan if this entry is not present anymore :

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Upgrade Service] C:\WINDOWS\sxchost.exe

    Cheers,
