    Alright I have some sort of program that's embeded itself somewhere on my Windows XP system but I can't find it. Spybot and Ad-Aware can't see it and PC-Cillin virus scan comes back negative. I can't find anything bad in the running processes nor do I have any annoying popups to point me in the right direction. All I have to go on are two constant errors.

    The first one happens when I try to get into a secure site like Yahoo mail or Netflix. I get a screen that comes back looking like this
    http://www.geocities.com/aeuzent/error.jpg
    The images wont load and sometimes the text align is way out there as you can see in Netflix
    http://www.geocities.com/aeuzent/error3.jpg

    The second problem I get is any time I try to use a search engine the only returns I'll get will be ads, no matter how obvious the search is.
    Here is a list of results I got on a Google search for "Mplayer"
    http://www.geocities.com/aeuzent/error2.jpg
    As most of you know 90% of that should be links to linux sites.

    This problem is not browser specific and comes up wether I use Firefox or IE.

    Launch the application, and click the "I know what I'm doing" checkbox.

    Check all instances of fltmgr.dll (and nothing else), and move them to
    the "Remove" pane.
    Then click Finish.

    Restart in safe mode

    Now delete the C:\windows\system32\fltmgr.dlll--> file

    Reboot. Post a new log

    Hi, Also> when and if you have to fix anything using Hijackthis, be sure to temporarily turn off SpyBot's TeaTimer, as it can interfere with making changes you need to.
    Before you do anything with Hijackthis, other than just scan and save a log>
    right click on the TeaTimer resident icon in the lower right taskbar. Click exit. Proceed with what you need to do.

    Turn TeaTimer back on... this got boring so I just don't use it. It does protect your Registry....I'm not saying you should not use it.
