Yesterday I logged into my computer & wanted to recheck a site from a few days ago. My history has all been deleted in spite of my settings to leave it up. Today I got the red house with ! on it indicating that I needed to update Microsoft security. I tried to update several times and it would get about 1/4 way through & then suddenly stop the update. Don't know what to do now. I installed Avast - no problems noted.

Go here and click the green "Download latest version" link to download and save HiJackThis 2.0.4.

After it's been downloaded and saved, close all open windows first, then double-click the saved file to install it.

Allow it to install in its default location - C:\Program Files.

After it's been installed, start it and then click "Do a system scan and save a log file".

When the scan is finished in less than 30 seconds, a log file will appear.

Save that log file.

Return here to your thread, then copy-and-paste the entire log file here.

-------------------------------------------------------

Start HiJackThis, but don't run a scan.

Click on the "Open The Misc Tools Section" button.

Click on the "Open Uninstall Manager" button.

Click on the "Save List" button.

Save the "uninstall_list.txt" file somewhere.

It'll then open in Notepad.

Return here to your thread, then copy-and-paste the entire file here.

Thanks everyone, internet provider came out - did some work on my lines to speed it up. When I asked him about the issues, he told me it was most likely my 8 year old computer getting cranky. Was buying one as my gift to myself next month anyway.
