    Yup, that's the problem, there's a random thing on my desktop, it looks like an egg wearing a beanie cap (really) about the size of an icon, that no matter what I do floats on the top of my desktop.

    I've scanned everything with Norton anti-virus and have NO CLUE what it is or how to get rid of it. . .

    Any ideas??? Please e-mail me!!!!!

    Hi, Welcome to TSG!!


    Click here to download HJTInstall.exe
    • Save HJTInstall.exe to your desktop.
    • Doubleclick on the HJTInstall.exe icon on your desktop.
    • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis .
    • Click on Install.
    • It will create a HijackThis icon on the desktop.
    • Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
    • Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should 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 Hijackthis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
