What up,

First I would try and scan the computer with Spyware Doctor from Then hijack this and post the txt file on
to see explanations of BHO, ActiveX etc... Finally i would copy the
explorer.exe on to a USB drive take it to another computer or VM and run
resource hacker from The tool has
a internal resource script compiler and decompiler to view executable
files. Before moving the file on to the HD of the clean computer rename
it to "explorer.exe.test" and move it to the desktop. Open the file with
Resource Hacker then open the clean computers explorer files and
manually compare. If not still, AVG free from scan,
then download IceSword 1.22 EN from and use the tools
supplied to view the registry and file system. look especially hard at
the %systemroot%/system32 folder. do a netstat -na or wireshak to
monitor you viruses communication. Post back.

Shiner Bock Rules!!!
