Use the Ad Aware program along with SpyBot Search and Destroy to scan your computer. You should also use a good virus scanner to scan the whole unit. I suggest that you use an online scanner too. Trend Micro has a good online scanner - free.

Ad-Aware and SpyBot Search and Destroy can be easily located on the web using Yahoo or Google search engines. – free

BHO is simply put a Browser Helper Object and everything from toolbars to spyware and other various program's that watch your Internet Activity (some invited some RAMMED down your throat)!

Make sure it is something you really don't want before you go and remove it .

It will not remove usually because it is still running in the background (if a Browser window is open then so is the program)click run type msconfig in the box go to startup and find the little nasty there (this will prevent the Reinstaller from loading at boot time)

Right click the clock and open the task manager click processes find it there and turn it off !

Click tool's (on browser window)then Internet option's then program's then manage addon's find it there and disable it !

Now reboot in safemode and do not open a browser window and run your scan again and let your antivirus (or whatever tool you where using that alerted you to the BHO)do it's job and remove the little nasty !

O Yes also when you finally do get rid of that nasty and you are clean again then turn off system restore and turn it back on again so as to purge all old system restore files and create a new one (one that is clean) .

The problem with system restore is that many Nasties will write their install to the system restore files and thereby when you do a restore you will also reinstall the nasty !

System Restore is really only good for one thing and that is if YOU purposly change something and your system no longer work's the way it used to (ex. drivers ,legitimate program install's ,etc.)If someone is gonna go thru all the bother of creating a program to do harm (virus ,trojan ,etc.)they most certainly will do what they can to keep it on your computer !!
