    Spy-bot S&D scan kicks out at file 14937
    Attempts to write to the Registry browser extensions by unknown prog denied
    attempted write is "&Download File,&Highlight,Zoom &in,Zoom O&ut"
    I checked Users and PWL found user called tryit
    deleted that unknown user
    If allowed the above 4 values open IE6 and computer locks and reboots
    if denied then IE6 opens for 5 minutes then locks I have to reboot with the reset button
    Ive been fighting it over a month still don't know where the write to registry coming from. :confused:

    You will use Hijackthis scan your computer, and then post the log to forums.spywareinfo.com
    or www.wilderssecurity.com
    Or use my BHR to delete them.
