You seem loaded up with at least a handful of spyware/adware/malware and/or trojans by the look of it.

So you know, you should post your Hijackthis logs in the Security forum, not here. If you go poke around in the Security section, you'll find a large Sticky thread on your bridge.dll problem.

I'm no expert (yet) at Hijackthis logs, but I see:

C:\Program Files\Winad Client\Winad.exe
C:\Program Files\Web_Rebates\WebRebates0.exe
C:\Program Files\Winad Client\WinClt.exe

These are adware/spyware/malware. I'm sure someone else will pop up to help you figure out the rest.


Moving this post into Security, as it is the more appropriate forum.

Also, please check the link in my sig, which is the same as the link at the top of the Security forum. It contains everything neccesary to fix the bridge.dll error message.

Additionally, unchecking those files may not work in HJT. Try simply uninstalling the Winad Client from Add/Remove Programs to rid yourself of DuncanIdaho's catches there.
