    What is the virus/malware status of the computer? If you think it is
    clean, what programs (and versions) did you use to determine this? Be
    sure the machine is clean:

    No , of course , it is nasty unless you really want it but I do think you
    can't stand it.

    Obviously => malicious software (malware)

    I'm sorry, but those symptoms certainly sound like malware to me. Run
    either Sysclean or Multi-AV (see the information at the link I gave you
    before - and here it is again for your convenience). If neither
    Sysclean or Multi-AV find anything, run HijackThis and post your log to
    one of the forums listed at the link (not here, please).

    **fast** malware removal instructions ...
    not the detailed one.

    You have probably performed the detailed so you tried installing whole Panda
    Titanium application which finds that there is an EZ track left and it
    doesn't want to install itself.

    You need the fast instructions because there you don't install antivirus
    application but use command line scanners , well known antispyware
    applications and protection against unknown threats system.

    For your convenience ,here is the link to the main page:
    http://pandaman.hit.bg

    The link for the Fast instructions:
    http://pandaman.hit.bg/fast_MRI_2.htm

    Instead of performing the removal steps first , you can scan your computer
    for free using Panda's ActiveScan where you check for all kind of
    threats.When the scan is completed, the scanner allows you to save the
    report.So save it on your Desktop (it is basic TXT file) and the post the
    report here so we will know what exactly you have on your PC. When you
    perform the scan , you can perform the fast instructions.

    I ran the Panda's ActiveScan but once it reaches 100 percent it stops. I read
    the instructions they said I would encounter an Active X prompt which I
    installed then when the progress bar reaches 0 remaining it just sits there
    so I left it for an hour or so same.
    Tried it a few times t gets to 0 time remaining and sits there
