Hi Make sure you have already run Adaware, Spybot S & D(check for updates) as these will do a preliminary clean first.Some files below may not be present after running the above programs.
Then.... Turn off your System Restore SEE HERE Reinstate it when your log is cleaned and then create a new restore point.Close your browser window and run hjt in safe mode... and have "Hijack This" fix all the following items by placing a check in the appropriate boxes and selecting "fix checked". Files highlighted in BLACK in the log will need to be removed from your hard drive. Make sure to have your system set to show hidden files and folders.. ..Please reboot and post a new log when finished...
run hijack this ,find the files listed in hijack this that coincide with my and pancakes listing ,place a checkmark against to have hijack this fix it finally delete the files-winxie32.exe and pbiokr.exe- and all should be well
