Read This, do what it says...Then, open HijackThis. Click-->Open the Misc Tools section-->Open Uninstall Manager-->Save list...and save the list to your Desktop, then close HijackThis.

A notepad file will open. Save the contents of that notepad to your desktop and close HijackThis.

Next, please open hijackthis again and click "Do a system scan and save a logfile". Post both of those logs back here on your next reply. Thanks!
