    Every so often I get an error message: C:\Windows\HKINAC~1.DAT Does not exist. What does this mean?

    When do you usually receive that message?

    I tried to look up some information on it but found nothing.
    Have you ran a virus scan lately?

    Just to be on the safe side, run a Hijack This log
    Download it from here: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html

    Run a scan, then copy&paste the log into this thread
    Do not attempt to fix anything yet

    Someone will check your log for any spyware, viruses, trojans, etc....
