    Hi acebet,

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

    O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {8333C319-0669-4893-A418-F56D9249FCA6} - (no file)

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [qffqcwko] C:\WINDOWS\System32\qffqcwko.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [qvyhrmwc] C:\WINDOWS\System32\qvyhrmwc.exe

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [MyWebSearch Email Plugin] C:\PROGRA~1\MYWEBS~1\bar\1.bin\mwsoemon.exe

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Ahst] C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Application Data\iebs.exe

    O4 - Startup: PowerReg Scheduler V3.exe

    O16 - DPF: {3C5BA506-6C30-4738-9CED-797ACADEA8DC} - http://www.sqwire.com/toolbar/SQLoader.cab
    O16 - DPF: {56336BCB-3D8A-11D6-A00B-0050DA18DE71} (RdxIE Class) - http://software-dl.real.com/054ca6ad1cb262eada23/netzip/RdxIE601.cab

    Then reboot into safe mode and delete:
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\qffqcwko.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\qvyhrmwc.exe
    C:\PROGRAM FILES\MYWEBSEARCH <= entire folder
    C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Application Data\iebs.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\runwin32.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\windial32.exe

    Then in IE > Tools > Internet-options > Connections tab > LAN settings remove the checkmark for the proxy if it is there.

    Regards,

    Pieter
