OK, I am trying to post a HJT log here, but when I run HJT and save, it saves it as a windows movie, thus really not able tpo save it at all. Any help. I have run adaware, CWS,and AVG to check it, its not finding anything, but this is what is there: "[email protected]:C\WINDOWS\start.chm::/start.html"

This is in the regedit.
Thanks

What Windows version are you using? And when it is saved what file type extension do you see. Do you have "hide extensions for known file types" checked in Folder Options > View? Uncheck that if you do.

If you continue to have problems, just right click on the file and rename it with a .log or a .txt extension. You should be able to open it in Notepad regardless of the file type you see.

And what are you doing with regedit? that has nothing to do with the saved file.

Hey RR, This machine is a Win98. It automatically saves it as "logfile" and doesn't give me an option to save it as anything else. Itried to do a screen print of the log and post it, but it wouldn't upload.
any other suggestions?

You can check and "fix" these items in the Scanlog:

R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = mk:mad:MSITStore:C:\WINDOWS\start.chm::/start.html
R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,(Default) = ,

By the way, your "home" page can be reset simply by dragging and dropping a url on the HOME icon.

If HijackThis is saving it as a .log file, that is what it is supposed to do. The problem is that you do not have a proper association for log files in the registry.

Here is how to correct it: Select (highlight) a saved .log file. Then SHIFT+Right Click on it. Select "open with" from the right click menu, then scroll or browse ("other" tab if not in the scroll menu) to Notepad and select that as the application to open with. Check "always use...." and then click "OK".

No problem; now that you know how to use HijackThis, just be sure to include a copy/paste any time you think you have a problem.
