    There are no dumb questions :)

    Hit scan, then save log. Once it is saved it will open in notepad. Select all from the edit button, copy and paste the results here. Don't fix anything with it yet! Someone experienced with the logs will advise you.

    Hi thanks. Well i did try saving it but a message popped up saying "cannot find Notepad.exe", also saying it cant open up file TEXT. Then it gives me a c:\ prompt but when i press enter it doesnt work. I guess that means i dont have notepad?

    I did the online scan, no threats were found. I also have run Spybot which found no threats. But i tried SpyDoctor and it found threats it deleted but also said there were more but i needed to buy the full version. I also tried Pestremover or something like that, same maker of Zonealarm, and it found quite a few but it also said i had to buy to remove them. I was there because i downloaded Zonealarm due to reccomendation i read. I'm not sure if this helps at all but everytime i restart my computer with Zonealarm up, it asks me a 3rd party plugin is trying to send outgoing or something similar to that, i've denied it. It also said messenger wants to act as a server which i also checked no. So i'm pretty sure i have something on my machine.

    I wish i could show you a copy of Hijack This but notepad wont open to cut and paste the results. Pls help!
