Download HijackThis from here click here

Double-click on "hijackthis_sfx.exe". This will create a folder, "C:\HijackThis", extract the program into that folder, and then open the folder for you. It will also create a shortcut on your desktop to HijackThis.

Open HijackThis and click on "Do a system scan and save a logfile". Copy the log and post it here click here

An expert on that forum will help you.
