This appears at the top of all replied or forwarded outgoing Hotmail Email. In ether IE7 or the latest firefox. I think they call it a header. Can anyone help me remove this?

Hope you can enjoy yourself in shopping from that company !

I have contacted my Antivius Co. (Trend Micro) and they had me download a scanning program that started after booting in safe mode. This didn't work.
Thanks in advance

Please follow the instructions below:

On a friend or family member's computer, download the Malwarebytes installer and update files from the links below, copy them to a CD or flash drive, then transfer the files to the problem machine and use them. If you can't start the computer into "normal" windows, try installing, updating, and running the scans AFTER the computer is started into Safe Mode.. I use the sites below to download the installer file and the manual updater:

Once downloaded and before transferring them to the problem machine, rename the program installer "mbam-setup.exe" file to something else like "Gogetum.exe", then copy the installer file and the update file to a CD or flash drive.. Transfer the file to the problem machine, then install the "Gogetum.exe" file, then run the update to get the program current.. After that, run a full system scan and delete anything it finds.

Malwarebytes Installer Download Link (Clicking on the links below will immediately start the download dialogue window.)

Malwarebytes Manual Updater link

Next, download the SuperAntispyware program and the manual updater from the links below. After running the Malwarebytes tool above, run a scan with SuperAntispyware as well. If you can't download and install it directly from the problem machine, download it on a friend or family member's computer as well.:


SuperAntispyware Manual Updater

Hope this helps.

I found it

The problem was at MSN Windows Live Email. A junk mail I deleted, not opened. Added the header at Personal signatures in Windows Live Options Other. I also had a junk mail that I deleted not opened start Emailing from my address book, by changing the Email Vacation settings at Windows live Hotmail Options Other.
I hope this helps others.

I guess your computer might be affected by some keyloggers. I suggest you to download xoftspyse spyware removal tool. You can also download hijackthis and post the logs in this forum so that we can tell you some deep details.
