I suggest you to use Malwarebytes 1.39 Free http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html?part=dl-10804572&subj=dl&tag=button Quick Scan > Attach the log on the forum.

Also do a Boot Time Scan with Avast! > Attach the log on the forum.

Download Hijackthis http://www.trendsecure.com/portal/en-US/tools/security_tools/hijackthis > Attach the log on the forum.

If you want u can alway do a quick scan with Windows Defender also if he see it.

Be sure you got a 2 Ways Firewall also (Inbound and Outbound) If you have XP Firewall then choice another firewall of your choice here http://www.matousec.com/projects/proactive-security-challenge/results.php

 Try to Boot into Safe Mode, then from there schedule a boot time scan or if avast wont work, repair avast installation via control panel, add/remove programs,remove/change,scroll down to see a repair function. Click repair.
Windows 7 (64-bit) Home Premium SP1
avast! 9 RC1
