Thanks for moving this post!
Sure, here you go....
Enable everything in MSCONFIG (if you have disabled anything).
Download HijackThis (link below). Make sure you install HijackThis to a permanent folder such as C:\HJT as it creates backups of what we will fix. Run the program, press Scan, press Save log. Notepad will open, copy and paste the entire log into your post. Do not fix anything yet, most of what's in the log is needed!

Hehe - I knew you'd be the first to answer! We should call you the 'spyware/adware/hijack/virus/everything horrible' expert
