    Hi guys,

    I'm here on behalf of my friend who is having some computer problems. He's using Windows 2000, and everything he tries to open opens up a picture viewer. He can't open his control panel or anything; it just launches the picture viewer.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    PS - Sorry if this has been previously discussed. I did do a search, and got through about two pages, but I'm about to pass out due to sleep deprivation.

    Thanks,
    Katie

    Welcome to TSG
    Looks like you should download (on his computer)'Hijack This!' from http://www.spywareinfo.com/files/hijackthis.zip
    Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, Click on "Scan". When the scan is finished click "Save Log", and copy and paste it back here. Someone that can help you ( and knows more than me ) will be along soon and tell you what to do.
