    Need help. I searched for a thread on this...please redirect me if there is one. I belive the pc is infected. McAfee virus scan will not run "scanning has encountered a problem". I tried using other tools but this virus seems to block them from use. I am not much of a tech guy but you guys were able to help me in the past...which was awesome. Sure would appreciate some help before I cave and do a reinstall.

    Cannot run Hijack this..when I tried to it shut down, when I try to er-run I get an error message "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permission to access the item."

    I even installed in Safe Mode and tried to run it, same result. Would surely appreciate anu help.

    Thanks,


    Dave
