    Upon login a window opens stating that there is a problem w/installation of a program. The problem is I didn't install this Pareto Logic Drivercure, and there is no way to uninstall it. Could you walk me through the process? Thanks!

    ParetoLogic has a very bad reputation. If you don't remember installing it, it might have been bundled up with another software.

    Try the free Revo Uninstaller.

    mnichols,

    Thought you had already tried "Add or remove programs". If you didn't, by all means, start with that before using any other uninstaller.

    You list yourself as a "Beginner", so I suspect you've installed and are using unneeded and potentially dangerous programs.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    Go here and click the green icon to download and save HiJackThis 2.0.4.

    After it's been downloaded and saved, close all open windows first, then double-click the saved file to install it.

    Allow it to install in its default location - C:\Program Files.

    After it's been installed, start it and then click "Do a system scan and save a log file".

    When the scan is finished in less than 30 seconds, a log file will appear.

    Save that log file.

    Return here to your thread, then copy-and-paste the entire log file here.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Start HiJackThis, but don't run a scan.

    Click on the "Open The Misc Tools Section" button.

    Click on the "Open Uninstall Manager" button.

    Click on the "Save List" button.

    Save the "uninstall_list.txt" file somewhere. It'll then open in Notepad.

    Return here to your thread, then copy-and-paste the entire file here.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------
