Hello again,

Usually when I turn my computer off, then turn it back on, everything is fine. However, the last time I did it, my computer did a chkdsk when it started up, the one that says "It is strongly recommended that you continue this".

I was wondering why it would do this? I didn't do anything other than what I normally do when turning it off. But when I turned it on it did the scan.

I ran Norton (found nothing) Spybot (Found nothing) and Ad Aware (Found a few things), but other than that I don't see what could be wrong. Here is my Hijack log.

Thanks again!

Nothing bad there. Probably one of those Microsoft gremlins :).
Every now and then this old PC of mine requests a password, even though I have set it to remember it.

Oh, okay, nothing to worry about then?

So, where can I find out how to read Hijack logs? Is there a site where I can go to learn how to read them, to find out what's going on? What's wrong and what I need to do to fix things?
