    I have a slight problem. I have Windows XP home Ed. I got a virus from somewhere and I think i got rid of it by using AVG but I can't open any of my programs. Can anyone please help me with this task.

    To double check the virus is gone, I'd do an online scan at TrendMicro's HouseCall. You did say you 'thought' you got rid of it.

    A Hijack This log may give the experts {not me} a better idea of what is going on.

    Hi C-Smoove-
    You can get Hijack This here-
    Unzip and scan. The scan button will turn into a save log button. Save it,copy and paste it back into this thread. Don't fix anything yet because most of it is needed.
