    I have a very bad virus on my computer that has a yellow triangle in the bottom tool bar next to the clock. I have run virus scans on them but the scans won't remove the virus. The virus slows my computer after about ten minutes I have to reboot it in order to open an application. I need help and am scared of what could be going on. also when I roll over the yellow triangle with my mouse it disappears for a while.

    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.

    Hello and thanks for a reply to my situation.
    I have tried to run the program from this site, your letter, and the email but it just won't come up I always get an error page and then some website called dnserror.org.
    Please help me fix this and hopefully my problem.
