I just reformatted through a Sony Vio recovery. I downloaded Hijackthis from Download.com and the following is the log. Could you all please have a look at it and tell me if I need to fix any issues? I really appreciate it.

Scan with HijackThis and then place a check next to all the following, if present:

Now, close all instances of Internet Explorer and any other windows you have open except HiJackThis, click "Fix checked".

I also recommend that you update Internet Explorer to the latest version here:


OK, I deleted that entry.

However when I tried to log onto AOL today it keeps kicking me off. I know most of you all hate AOL but I like it. Anyway, I unistalled it and reinstalled it still won't let me log on. I'm at my wits end with this.

Any ideas?
