    i am running 7 but the icon is running grey and not coloured, it is saying

    "Internal Virus database is out of date"

    Think it means my free membership is up ?
    I have checked for updates but none available

    No, free is free - You are right clicking the tray icon and then check for updates

    Maybe your version is corrupt and you need to remove and DL again

    Other problems on the system??????????

    BTW I use AVG and it works just fine for me and many others

    Maybe a hijack log is in order

    Click here to download HJTsetup.exe:

    http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/forum/index.php?action=tpmod;dl=item5
    Scroll down to the download section

    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.
