Hi Everyone:

Thank you for your help. After all the cleaning, I'm still having problems. Today I had to Alt+ctrl+del 6 times twice to be able to get on. The machine was giving the same message of operating system not found. I'm just wondering when this happens will putting into the CD Rom the Windows XP Disk and using System File Checker would it help me? If I do that, will I be wiping any information I need including my Outlook Express? Here is my log can you tell me if I have anything bad that is causing this? Please tell me what to do if there's a nasty critter in here. I don't here any noises that would suggest something going bad. Thank you so much for your kindness. I am so grateful. You folks are very nice! Have a very nice day!

P.S. I noticed in my log a mention of an adware alert. I saw in your site a suggestion of the adware, I tried but it did not work out for me, and now I can't get rid of it. Could that be causing a conflict?

I see that you have previously posted your hijackthis logs in the correct forum, but posted this one in the Windows NT / 2000 / XP / 2003 forum. Please read the announcement at the head of the forum.
Moving you to the correct forum now. Hold on tight.


You also need to keep all your replies for this problem within the same thread instead of starting new ones.
I will close this thread now and you can continue where you left off; http://www.daniweb.com/forums/thread100752.html

The above is a legitimate entry, providing you have the latest edition. At one time it did have a very dubious reputation.
