    Hi ZENbrz,

    Could you please follow the instructions posted here:

    Go straight to step 3 since you already used Spybot S&D.

    Regards,

    Well ... it seems you got infected with a dialer. Most anti-virus and anti-spyware programs don't have a reliable dialer detection. You can try YAW or a² free to remove the dialer. Both are able to detect more than 3 million dialer variants. YAW has a reliable heuristic for dialers, too.

    You can find further information at:

    A little description of what dialer are can be found on:

    If you don't want to install anything please post your HiJackThis log file.
