    OK i'm not the smartest computer person and thats where this all started. Three days ago i had flashing question mark in my systems tray telling i needed to purcahse some antispyware since some had been detected on my comptuer and was going to casue problems if i didn't. So silly me i looked around the web and ended up purchaseing winantispy 2007 w/ drive cleaner. To make along story short, last night i figured out that this program was malicous in nature and hadn't solved my problem. I still have this flashing icon. I talked to an IT friend of mine who directed me to free programs such as spybot search and destroy and an adware program. THese cleaned up some issues but i still have that flashing icon in my system tray, which tells me that i still have a problem. I was going to do a system restore but that was disabled and is not avaliable to me. I am running windows xp and also have mcafee security on computer. Any help w/ this would be greatly appreciated. Need some experienced help here please in resolving issues. Spybot did a search and immunized most of it except for something regarding winantispy in the H_Key directory. Said to run it on system restart. Which it did but nothing happened and computer just sat on home screen.

    Hi and welcome

    * Click here to download HJTsetup.exe.
    Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.

    Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
    By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
    Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
    Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
    Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
    At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
    Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
    Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
    Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
    Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
    DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
