Thanks AndySD, I checked my add and remove programs and found nothing apart from bullseye yesterday which i got rid of and seems to staying away.I have downloaded and made a log file from Hijack this but it says in the forums not to paste or send any log files unless somone asks for it, so me stuck between a rock and a hard place.

Post it here. You may need to do this in two or more sections because of the 800 word limit here. Be sure to include the header information at the top which lists your operating system etc. Please double space it by adding a blank line every other line.

Then wait for Nellie2 to weave her magic.

Hello mulva42

Download Adaware click here Next: (after installing) with Ad-Aware SE open, click "check for updates"

Do not run Ad-Aware yet, just install and update.

configure windows to show hidden files and folders, see here for instructions click here

Bring up task manager by pressing Ctrl-Alt-Del and end these processes if they are there


Now close all programs and browsers and run hijackthis, put a tick against the following and click 'fix checked'

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = hxxp://defaulthomepage.co.uk/

O2 - BHO: ZServObj Class - {00000000-C1EC-0345-6EC2-4D0300000000} - C:\WINDOWS\ZServ.dll

O2 - BHO: BAHelper Class - {A3FDD654-A057-4971-9844-4ED8E67DBBB8} - C:\Program Files\SideFind\sfbho.dll

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [dgpmlewxd] C:\WINDOWS\System32\seyapw.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [satmat] C:\WINDOWS\satmat.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Parallel Tasking] C:\Program Files\Parallel Tasking\ptask.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [sais] c:\program files\180solutions\sais.exe

O9 - Extra button: SideFind - {10E42047-DEB9-4535-A118-B3F6EC39B807} - C:\Program Files\SideFind\sidefind.dll

Then reboot into safe mode, by tapping F8 as the computer boots up

Search for and delete the following;

C:\Program Files\Parallel Tasking <-- folder
c:\program files\180solutions <--- folder
C:\Program Files\SideFind\ <-- folder

Empty your temp files by running disk cleanup

Go to Start>Programs>Acccessories>System Tools> Disk Cleanup and put a check mark beside all the entries in the disk cleanup window that ask you what you want to clean. Clean all hard drives and all files. This will get rid of any malware that is hiding in the temporary folders.

Then still in safe mode, run Adaware and let it fix everything that it finds. Reboot back to normal mode and post a fresh log please.
