    I am trying to follow your directions, but I am having problems after I scan. when i hit the save log button I have no idea where it is being saved along with the notepad so I can't find it to post on this forum to get help. Can you help? I am about to go insane trying to get rid of this trojan.

    go to here and download 'Hijack This!' self installer. Save it to the desktop or other suitable place. DO NOT just press run from the website Double click on the file and it will install to C:\program files\hijackthis and create an entry in the start menu and an optional shortcut on desktop.
    Click on the entry in start menu or on the desktop to run HijackThis
    Click the "Scan" button, when the scan is finished the scan button will become "Save Log" click that and save the log.
    Go to where you saved the log and click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log back here in a reply.
    It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required,
    so do NOT fix anything yet.
    Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.


    a log should automatically pop up in notepad if it doesn't then HJT saves by default in C:\program files\hijackthis so the log will be there
