    Is one of your short cuts infected ? Usually other malware is present along with the short cut infection...

    This should do it,


    Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your Desktop.
    • Close all open programs and internet browsers.
    • Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
    • Click the Scan button and wait for the process to complete.
    • Click the logfile button and the log will open in Notepad.
    • NOTE: If you get an error message, it means that nothing was found. Exit from AdwCleaner.
    • Click on the Clean button follow the prompts.
    • A log file will automatically open after the scan has finished and the PC has rebooted.
    • Please post the content of that log file with your next answer.
    • You can find the log file at C:\AdwCleaner

    I also suggest you run a full diagnostics scan called FRST (Farber Recovery Scan Tool) so we may look over the entire machine.

    Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your Desktop.

    Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
    • Right click to run as administrator (XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File). When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.[/*]
    • Press Scan button.[/*]
    • It will produce a log called FRST.txt in the same directory the tool is run from.[/*]
    • Please copy and paste log back here.[/*]
    • The first time the tool is run it generates another log (Addition.txt - also located in the same directory as FRST.exe/FRST64.exe). Please also paste that along with the FRST.txt into your reply.[/*]
