need help fixing hjjacked browser.

Recommended Posts

My father's computer is in some pretty bad trouble. I can not get to any pc help web sites like PC Pitstop.

If I type in pcpitstop.com or majorgeek.com the browser get's redirected to virusremover2008.com (which is malware).


On boot an "Antivirus XP 2008" start some kind of scan but this program is also malware.


I also have an IE toolbar that run's PCPrivacyCleaner (which is malware).


It has this cool screen saver that is a blue screen of death and it rolls to like a windows XP boot screen but it is only a screen saver.


I am sure it has more problems but I can not get to any PC Pitstop to do a scan of my computer to tell.


I am attaching my HJT log file let me know what you think I should do, hijackthis.txt
