I used Hijackthis last night for the first time and was able to find and fix some problems, thanks to some tips from this site. Can someone take a look at this and tell me if you see anything else here that looks like a problem? One thing I am curious about is all the McAfee stuff and Acrobat stuff, do I need to have all this stuff running all the time?

Thanks for any help or insight.

Your log is clean. :)

In terms of the programs you mentioned:

* The McAfee components should all be left as they are.
* You don't need the Adobe "acrotray.exe" component running, but you'll probably want to leave the Acrobat BHOs installed, as they provide the ability to read .pdf documents from within Internet Explorer.
