    You can't count on a single malicious software scanning too to know
    about everything, so you should consider expanding your scanning
    softwares with these free tools, then when they run clean, fix your
    System Restore. Avast! is okay, but doesn't know everything.

    HijackThis will only fix what you tell it to fix and just running it
    won't fix any malicious software attack - you have to tell it to do
    something specific based on the results.

    Perform some scans for malicious software, then fix any remaining
    issues:

    Download, install, update and do a full scan with these free malware
    detection programs:

    Malwarebytes (MBAM): http://malwarebytes.org/
    SUPERAntiSpyware: (SAS): http://www.superantispyware.com/

    They can be uninstalled later if desired.
