    hi guys,

    ive asked around a few places but noone seems to want to help. ild apprecate it if you guys could.

    The past week or so my computer has been acting weird, freezing up all of a sudden, going slower then usual and my hard disk space kept going down and down, it went down about 10GBs in a week, and i didnt even download or install anything! ive tried a whole heap of spyware removal thingies and all that jazz but they ethier dont find anything or only find minor risks with tracking cookies.

    i run norton 360 and that didnt find anything ethier. Well after getting no help elsewhere i decided to reformat the computer back to its orignal factory purchased state. now that ive done that, i went and ticked the "show hidden files" and on the desktop was 2 .INI files.

    They had the following in a notepad:

    [.ShellClassInfo]
    [email protected]%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll,-21769
    IconResource=%SystemRoot%\system32\imageres.dll,-183

    and


    [.ShellClassInfo]
    [email protected]%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll,-21799

    i deleted these files as i searched them on google and read that they are no good. the computer seems to be running ok and my hard disk space is back to around 281gbs (havent re-installed norton yet). But i scan with hijackthis and it has a few things that look suspicious.

    also everytime i open IE it asks norton internet security askes me if i want to allow or disallow adobe flash, and it keeps asking and asking!

    ill post my log and hope someone can help tell me what to do!!!

    thank you
