Turn off system restore if it is used in your os.

Download, update, and run the following.

Your Antivirus Software

This item will not update through the program. You have to download the new version.

There are programs that will provide you with information about what is running on startup or what is loaded currently.

StartUpList:

StartUpList is information only. Startup, Registery, and others. You can?t fix anything from within the program.

Hijack This:

Hijack This
This program is useful in that it shows what is currently loading on startup. You must know what is good and what is bad. Once you check it and fix it is gone. So be sure. Items you are not sure of do a Google search for them.

Winaudit
http://www.pxserver.com/WinAudit.htm

Winaudit does an extensive audit of you computer. Complete list of installed software, dll, and other good stuff.

Aida32

Everest (This replaced Aida32)
http://www.lavalys.com/products.php?lang=en

Everest used to be Aida32. Good system information.

Run Your Antivirus again

Download and install all OS updates.

I have had to boot into safe mode and run the removal programs.

Good Luck Lee
