hi there,

my explorer won't start anymore when i start my computer. i have to open the taskmanager to start the explorer from there. thank god at least that works!!! anyway, my little brother confessed the other day that he surfed the net and ended on certain sex sites! thank you very much!! now i have that trouble of not being able to erase those stupid cookies and i have popups all the time asking me to install harddrive cleaners, commercials and sex popups, of course. i'm not speaking to him anymore
i ran an active panda scan, cause i thought there was a virus on my hard drive but no. just those cookies.
a week ago, i uninstalled sp2 (properly) but eversince that week i can't start my computer without shaking: is it going to crash again? cause it does that just like that lately.

i guess it's faulty windows rather than a virus or something. if you would like a hijackthis scan, tell me. i got one ready to post and for you to check.

anyway, how can i fix this mess???????

thanks for all of your help!

Click here to download HJTsetup.exe
  • Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.
  • Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
  • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
  • Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Additional Tasks dialogue.
  • Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
  • Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
  • At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
  • Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
  • Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
  • Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
  • Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
  • DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

Then wait a reply from someone with a shiny Gold Shield.
