As for spyware, ran upon it, got rid of it with Ad-aware and Spybot S&D.

The problem?

I'm not sure if it is the after effects of a spyware cleaning, or not... but I've been having a LOAD of trouble lately with internet explorer.

1.IE wants to download things to TEMP. Things such as EXE's are warned against, and there is no way to uncheck it to NOT warn me. If I hit open, it downloads to TEMP, and auto-opens. Zips, they didn't even ask me, they just auto downloaded to TEMP and opened. I fixed this however by uninstalling winzip 9.

2.Also, php files, I try to run a small apache server with php just for testing some code, and it wants to auto download php! I've tried opening the PHP files and setting them to open with IE, but it wont display, it just wants me to save the file instead of view it.

3.I try to uncheck the option to show the dialup monitors in the system tray, but they wont hide. The flashing is irritating :(

4.I've managed to delete the things in my TEMP directory, but there is one file that wont delete. It is called "~DFF93B.TMP" I've tried booting into safe mode to delete it, but it still is put back as soon as I do it. I'm thinking this might be the problem.. but it may be something safe. I really don't know.

All I want is to be able to download with IE without it telling me "FILES OF THIS ARE DANGEROUS..BLAHBLAH.." (the check is grayed out to tell it to stop asking me, so there is no way to change it).. and I wish that PHP files would not download instead of show in Internet Explorer.

Also, when I say TEMP, I mean c:/windows/temp/ not c:/windows/temporary internet files/


Like I said, I have scanned with both Ad-aware and Spyboy S&D. They were both fully updated too. I've also scanned with an up to date AVG Antivirus. Futher more, I've posted hijack this logs and been told what things I should remove.

So Adware, Spybot S&D, AVG, and hijack this logs seem to all be clean... maybe I've somehow messed up windows myself? I've also tried to both reinstall and repair IE.. the only thing I can think of as a last resort is reinstalling windows. =\

Does anybody out there have ANY ideas? I would be more than happy to hear them. Thanks in advance!


For refrence, here is my hijack this log:
