Re Tom1110: Try NOT to reformat your hard disk so soon unless you absolutely have to -- it's like doing brain surgery for a hangnail -- use this challenge as an exercise to discover, quarantine and delete the culprit -- whatever malware you got is annoying BUT try doing more research online using search terms combined with "Movie Mode" before you resort to reformatting. Combine your troubleshooting techniques with Safe Mode. Do you have a real security program that you've paid for and subscribe to? -- With it you'll be able to get some real professional tech support. Good Luck.

Excelent work, best tool ever against fk pups but u need add more detection against baidu, hao123, yac, psafe, McAfee Security Scan, fk speed tools and other junk from baidu that is spreading wildly.
