    I dont know what this is and im am not good with this stuff. All i know how to do is click the scan button and then delete but on McAffee it doesnt let me. It says file cannot be deleted, quarantined or cleaned. I dont know what to do lately my computer has been so messed up so many popusps spyware and viruses is there a good way just to clean the whole thing without losing documents and stuff

    Hi, Welcome to TSG!!

    Click here to download HJTsetup.exe
    Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.

    Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
    By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
    Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
    Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
    Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
    At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
    Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
    Click Save to save the log file and then the log will 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 Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

    Restart your machine and disconnect your internet, unplug the cable or turn off the modem.

    Then try to install and get the log saved before accessing the internet.
