    Hello out there! Can anyone help me? My pc has developed a brand new problem. When I go to a site, any site, and try to click on any of the advertised links, they will not come up. The hand or hourglass icon just sits there and nothing happens. This just started, never did it before. What's up? Is it something I've done?Help please!!!!!!

    Go to http://tomcoyote.org/hjt/ and download HiJackThis. Use Winzip to unzip it, then install and run it. To run, click the “Scan” button. When it's done the "Scan" button changes to "Save Log". Save the log file it creates (it should open in Notepad at that point). Copy and paste the results in your next post. IF you happen to be using a proxy server, please mention it in your post. Most of what it finds is harmless, so do not do anything yet. Someone will be glad to help you sort out any of the baddies that may be in there.

    Thanks for the heads-up brother! I have printed-out your instructions and will be about the business of following them. I will be back to the forum in the near future to let you know how it worked out Thanks again, Marquee
