Hi Bodawg

Please download HijackThis . This program will help us determine if there are any spyware/malware on your computer. Double-click on the file you just downloaded. It will by default install to the directory - C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis.

  • Make sure you close down EVERY open window and close ALL browser windows. The only thing that should be open is the HijackThis program.
  • If it gives you an intro screen, just choose 'Do a system scan and save a log file'.
  • If not, run a scan and save the log file.
  • Copy the text file (Ctrl+A then Ctrl+C) and paste it (Ctrl+V) in a new thread in the Viruses, Spyware and other Nasties Forum
  • Do not fix any entries in HijackThis since they may be harmless.
  • Make sure to include the System information at the top of the log as well.
