Welcome Superhero17,

Do you have an up-to-date AV and have you scanned your system recently?

Go here and download Adaware http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/ update it - run it and delete anything it finds.

Go here and download Spybot http://www.download.com/3000-8022-10122137.html
update it - run it and delete anything it finds.

To keep your system uncluttered go here: http://personal.inet.fi/business/toniarts/ecleane.htm scroll down to locate download. Install and run. You will only need to use "unnesessary" and "registry"

Let us know how you get on.

Hi Superhero17, Welcome to TSG!!


You can get a free anti virus product here: http://forums.techguy.org/t110854/s.html

Create a permanent folder on your hard drive for Hijackthis, like My Documents\HJT
Click on this link: http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/files/HijackThis.exe and "Save" hijackthis to the folder you have created.

Double click on the program to run hijackthis, click "scan" then click on "Save Log".

Post a copy back here and someone will be happy to review it.

Don't make any changes until instructed to do so.

You couldn't download or you couldn't create a file?

What is the precise error message?

Note: You need the Visual Basic 6 runtime libraries to run any of my programs.
Most systems already have this, but should you get an error about MSVBVM60.DLL missing, get the libraries from Microsoft.com here.

If you are missing MSVBVM60.DLL go here: http://www.merijn.org/downloads.html and you can download it.

Click My Computer, then C:\
In the menu bar, File->New->Folder.
That will create a folder named New Folder, which you can rename to "HJT" or "HijackThis". Now you have C:\HJT\ folder. Put your HijackThis.exe there, and double click to run it.

Post the log so we can have some idea of what's going on here.
