Hi everyone,

I'm new to this forum, but I was wondering if I could get a little bit of help from someone. The problem that I have is that my computer wasn't working very well a few days ago. I ran HiJackThis to see what the problem was. I didn't read the directions, so I deleted everything the log (go ahead and laugh :lol: , I know I'm pretty stupid.) I have my log as it is now posted below. If anyone could help me out to tell me which files I am missing/if there are any other problems with it.

Thanks in advance,

hijak does a backup of changes ,they should be in the folder you ran hijack from ,by the way it is not recomended that you run it from a temp folder ,so lets hope the backup is still there .
Run hijack ,go to config/ backups ,it should show up in the window ,hit RESTORE . good luck!:)

If that works put hijackthis .exe in its own folder like c:\HJ\hijackthis .exe
And run it again and post a new log .

:-( I learned that I should not have it in a temp folder a day or 2 ago, so I deleted it from there and redownloaded it and put it in it's own folder... When I hit restore, nothing came back up...

I know that something is most likely wrong, but it seems like my computer is running a lot better. Can you see that and important files are missing or if I have any bad ones left?
