Hi. Am very new to this...so please forgive any mistakes I will make.
I have been having problems with my pc ever since I installed xp sp2. Recently I tried to access www.avast.com to download an antivirus program someone told me was good because I had removed spybot search & destroy, lavasoft adware, att/yahoo antivirus and just wanted one good program.
Problem was as soon as i typed in address in browser and hit go...browser immediately closes. I tried several times. Also, whenever I type the word "virus" into a search engine, my browser closes. I am currently on my kids pc to try & figure out what to do next.
It looks like I need to download hijack this first...but am afraid I won't be able to do on the problem computer. If I don't hear back right away...I will try to get that done at least. I have many more issues with said computer, but this is where I need to start.
Any advice will be GREATLY appreciated.
