    Hi

    Ive come back to the forum again. This time for help with slow puter. How slow is it...very low resources on start up. Ive browsed some of the posts on that topic and DL hijacker, to its own folder. However when I save the log....I cant open it.
    (winzip reopens)

    Id like to paste my results here...but WORDPAD does not open.
    how can I cut and paste this so that I may have assistance with my log.

    Ive already unchecked a few things from MSconfig...but a lot of them, I just dont know what they are. :confused:

    Thanks
    Linda

    The log file that HJT generates has a .log extension. All we have to do ia set up a file association so that log files open in NotePad.

    Locate the file and then while you hold down the shift key right click on the file.
    You will see the standard right click menu with one addition, Open With...
    Click on Open With and you will be presented with a window that contains a listing of the programs on your PC.
    Scroll down and highlight NotePad.
    Next put a check mark in the box that says Always use this program to open this file type.
    Click OK Your log file should open in NotePad. And the next time you click on a log file it will automaticly open in NotePad. Unless it is too large, in which case it will open in WordPad.
