    Lately, after a reformat, my internet has been 100% dodgy. :confused:

    Im running XP home, using a Siemens 4200 ADSL modem via Ethernet connection.
    When I turn my computer on, I can use the internet for about 5 minutes, but then it stops working, ie. Mozilla and internet explorer cannot find server for every web page. It looks exactly like a computer not connected to the net. But after a computer reboot, I can use the net for about 5 minutes again. :confused:

    Im also having trouble removing that SpySheriff Malware thing, if thats anything to do with it.
    Also, in both my web browsers, if i type 'Hijackthis' anywhere on the page (adress bar or search bar) my web browser closes! (Both IE and Firefox). But this only happens for Hijackthis. Its like some program on my computer doesnt want me to fix it!

    Any help would be very much appreciated.

    Thank you. =D

    Click here to download HJTsetup.exe:

    Scroll down to the download section

    Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.

    Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
    By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
    Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
    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 dialogue 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.
    Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
    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.
