    Hi,

    I have a folder on my desktop containing videos downloaded from torrents, youtube, etc. As of late, every time I open it a few seconds later it freezes and has to be shut down thru the task manager. I've scanned it twice with Norton AntiVirus but found nothing. Anybody know what the problem may be?

    Welcome to TSG....

    The torrents network we can not help you with because it is against the rules here at TSG. More than likely this network is the cause of the problem.

    I am going to ask if there is a way to help you with the problem please do a HijackThis log for use.

    To download HJTsetup.exe fromTrendSecure To Download HijackThis go to the following at the File Repository
    Click on the link below to Download HijackThis Self Installer:

    http://www.trendsecure.com/portal/en-US/threat_analytics/HJTInstall.exe

    Save the file to your desktop.
    Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
    By default it will install to C:\Program Files\HijackThis.
    Continue to click Next in the setup dialog boxes until you get to the Select Additional Tasks dialog.
    Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
    Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
    At the final dialog box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
    Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
    Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
    At the top of the Notepad HJT log screen, hit Edit then Select All then click Edit and then click Copy doing that copies the text to the clipboard, you won't see it yet....
    Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
    DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
    A security expert with a gold shield to the right of their name should take a look at your log - please be patient.
