Well, I just hooked up this old computer that I'm on and it's so messed up. I don't know what's wrong with it but maybe if someone can check out my hijack this report or something you can help me. I don't have hijack on this computer so if you can send me the link...I'll do whatever. I have a lot of things that pile up in my tray or whatever and I'd like to get rid of that. My ultimate goal is to restore this computer to it's orginal factory settings and get rid of everything on it. Thanks so much. By the way, I'm thinking about going to college for computers...I'm curious about so if anyone can check that out and give me you opinion on weather I should even waste my time looking into it, I'd appreicate it. Thank you!!!

Here's how to post a HJT (HijackThis) log and let a qualified member (gold shield next to their name) take you through what needs to be done. I suggest you print off this guide, just in case ....
Please go no further than the stages listed here for now.

Using Hijackthis with the self-installer that puts it into Program Files for you:

go to 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 save the log 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.
  • 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.

Once you've posted that log here you'll need to wait for a qualified member to take you through the next stages.You'll get great help ...
