    The "free" music download sites make their money by putting adware and other neat stuff on you. So much for free huh.

    Have her download and run the following programs. After they clean up some stuff she may be able to get Hijack This to open properly. There could also be a problem with her Notepad. Ask her to do a search for Notepad.exe and tell me how many she has and where they are located. Also, right click on each one and let me know the size, if there's a version tab and the date created.

    Please download and run the following program(s):

    AD-AWARE


    Go here: http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download/
    and download Ad-Aware SE Personal

    Install the program and launch it.

    First, in the bottom right-hand corner of the main window click on Check for updates now then click Connect and download the latest reference files.

    Then, in the main window: Click Start and under Select a scan Mode tick Perform full system scan.

    Then, deselect Search for negligible risk entries.

    To start the scan, click the Next button.

    When the scan is finished mark everything for removal and get rid of it. (Right-click the window and choose select all from the drop down menu and then click Next)

    Restart your computer.


    SPYBOT SEARCH & DESTROY

    http://majorgeeks.com/download2471.html

    Open Spybot Search & Destroy (Click Start, Programs, Spybot S&D (Advanced Mode). Click online, Search for updates, Download all available updates. Close all Browser windows, Click ''Check for Problems''. Anything that needs to be fixed it will show in red and have a green check in the box to the left. Click ''Fix Selected Problems'', Then restart your computer.

    Then, after rebooting, try again to get a Hijack This log.
