                No biggie. Let's clean up. :)

                To manually create a new Restore Point
                • Go to Control Panel and select System and Maintenance
                • Select System
                • On the left select Advance System Settings and accept the warning if you get one
                • Select System Protection Tab
                • Select Create at the bottom
                • Type in a name i.e. Clean
                • Select Create
                Now we can purge the infected ones
                • Go back to the System and Maintenance page
                • Select Performance Information and Tools
                • On the left select Open Disk Cleanup
                • Select Files from all users and accept the warning if you get one
                • In the drop down box select your main drive i.e. C
                • For a few moments the system will make some calculations
                • Select the More Options tab
                • In the System Restore and Shadow Backups select Clean up
                • Select Delete on the pop up
                • Select OK
                • Select Delete
                You are now done

                To remove all of the tools we used and the files and folders they created, please do the following:
                Please download OTC.exe by OldTimer:
                • Save it to your Desktop.
                • Double click OTC.exe.
                • Click the CleanUp! button.
                • If you are prompted to Reboot during the cleanup, select Yes.
                • The tool will delete itself once it finishes.
                Note: If any tool, file or folder (belonging to the program we have used) hasn't been deleted, please delete it manually.

                ==

                Please download TFC by OldTimer to your desktop
                • Please double-click TFC.exe to run it. (Note: If you are running on Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator).
                • It will close all programs when run, so make sure you have saved all your work before you begin.
                • Click the Start
                  button to begin the process. Depending on how often you clean temp
                  files, execution time should be anywhere from a few seconds to a minute
                  or two. Let it run uninterrupted to completion.
                • Once it's finished it should reboot your machine. If it does not, please manually reboot the machine yourself to ensure a complete clean.
                ==

                Download Security Check by screen317 from SpywareInfoforum.org or Changelog.fr.
                • Save it to your Desktop.
                • Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
                • A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.
