Once you have checked those lines, select "Fix checked" and approve any dialog boxes that pop up.

After you have done that, restart your computer, create a new HijackThis log, and post the log here.

when i downloaded hijackthis i clicked run instead of save. And how can I know if hijackthis is in its own folder?

oh ok never mind, i just extracted it from zip file to C:

Download it again and save it to its own folder. If it downloads as a zip file, unzip it to the folder.

ok i deleted those here's the log file
