    Internet explorer has been launching itself and coming up with multiple screens and script errors. I ran a scan of Hijackthis. Here is a sample. Please advise on how to proceed.

    Those 3 examples are:

    CommonName Toolbar (aka: CNBabe / WinNet)

    New.Net domains (NewDotNet browser hijacker)

    Favorite Man (Fone.DLL)

    These are notorious spyware/scumware/parasiteware items usually installed by file-sharing programs such as Kazaa, Morpheus, Grokster, iMesh, Limewire, Audiogalaxy, Bearshare, and more.

    Further info here

    I strongly suggest you uninstall whichever p.o.s. p2p program you installed, and then download and install Spybot Search & Destroy

    Close all browser windows

    Open Spybot S&D for the first time
    Select Country & click out of the setup section (Next button)

    Click "Online" button, click "check for updates"
    (note: you need to be online for this)
    Checkmark and download the latest Includes/Updates
    (skins/languages aren't important)

    "Settings" button, click "File Sets"
    Uncheck "Usage Tracking" and "System Internals"

    Go back to main "Spybot S&D" button
    Click "Check for problems"

    Let the scan run

    When done, all spyware/adware/etc will be auto checked in the results,
    so just click "Fix selected problems"

    If you are prompted that some files are in use and can't be deleted,
    Click "Yes" to allow Spybot S&D to run on reboot.

    Spybot S&D will load before the Windows GUI
    Run the scan again and let Spybot S&D complete its task.
    When you see "congratulations, no spybots found" in the main window,
    that's when you know you're clean.

    Close Spybot S&D and Windows GUI will load.

    If you want, you can also download and run StartUpList and post the result file here. If you do this before and after running Spybot S&D, we can then keep tabs on the progress and maybe offer further advice/tips. :)
