    Hello tech friends,

    System spec: Aspire laptop 1302XC AMD Athlon XP 1600+ 256 SD RAM 20GB Ultra ATA/100HDD OS - XP Home Edition

    This is my first posting. Despite a good layer of antivirus and anti spyware protection i've got an error message via spybot when i try to use yahoo e mail, stating that my system is infected with a 'malicious resorse' identified as : TagAsaurus. I'm an intermediate user, and although i've found instructions on how to remove this, i'm not confident about dabbling with the registry, in case i delete something i shouldn't. Below is my HJT log which i hope you can advise me on specifically what to delete. I've got lot's more questions (in time), but hope that someone can advise me regarding the removal of this pest please.

    Thanks, (in advance),

    Jazzymazzy

    Hi,

    Is this in the right section? I posted this some time ago - no reply. I'll wait a while longer - if no reply i'll leave the forum. A little disappointed to say the least...
