    Hiya and welcome

    Download 'Hijack This!
    Extract the files to the Program Files as suggested, or Browse to a newly created folder. Don't run straight from the desktop, as the Backup files will be stored there.

    Navigate to the extracted files, and doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

    When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
    Press that, save the log somewhere, and please copy & paste its contents to the forum.

    It will possibly show other issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.

    Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

    Regards

    eddie

    When you use Hijackthis, don't delete anything that it finds. Just post the log here, and we'll take a look at it for you :)

    Hi and welcome to TSG,

    I would remove 1-2-3 SPYWARE FREE as it has a dubious reputation of false positives and poor performance. It was listed as rogue but has since been delisted. However, I would still not trust it.

    Other than that, I don't see any problems in the log.


    Having said that, have you tried to do a system restore to a point in time before this problem started?

    Download TweakUI 1.33 from here:

    http://www.annoyances.org/downloads/ftp/tweakui.zip

    To install TweakUI:

    # Unzip tweakui.zip using an unzip utility, such as WinZip, and place the files in a new folder in a convenient location, such as your desktop.

    # Right-click on the tweakui.inf file and select Install to install it on your system.

    # To start TweakUI, double-click the TweakUI icon in Control Panel.

    Note: there's a bug in this installer (it's been there since the very first release, except for the new version for Windows XP). If it prompts you to insert a disk or specify the location of the Tweakui files, just point to the folder containing the files you just unzipped, and click Ok.

    Now start TweakUi in Control Panel.

    Click the Repair tab, select Repair Icons from the drop down menu and click Repair.

    Restart the PC after that and test.

    Zee

    You need to post the exact message you're getting as that doesn't help us very much.
