    I tried to follow the Grandpaw7 thread about the mysterious Second Thought icon appearing on his desktop, but couldn't. Can anyone tell me how to make this disappear? I haven't downloaded anything recently... it just appeared the other day. I did a regedit/find and found it, but I'm afraid to delete anything and screw up my registry. What is it? And how do I make it go away?

    Thanks!

    Welcome to TSG.
    Let's see what we can do to help you.

    Go to http://tomcoyote.org/hjt/ and download HiJackThis. Use Winzip to unzip it, then install and run it. To run, click the “Scan” button. When it's done the "Scan" button changes to "Save Log". Save the log file it creates (it should open in Notepad at that point). Copy and paste the results in your next post. IF you happen to be using a proxy server, please mention it in your post. Most of what it finds is harmless, so do not do anything yet. Someone will be glad to help you sort out any of the baddies that may be in there.
