    Please rename HijackThis.exe as per these instructions and post a fresh HJT log.

    You still haven`t renamed HijackThis.exe as per the instructions.

    Taken from your HJT log.

    C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis\HijackThis.exe

    It should say:

    C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis\Crusty.exe

    Yes, now double click the Crusty.exe shortcut and run a HJT scan. Then, post the resulting HJT log. If it still says C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis\HijackThis.exe in your HJT log, then you have done something wrong.

    I dion`t know what you`re doing wrong, but you`re obviously missing something out.

    Delete your current version of HJT.

    Now go and read these instructions and make sure you follow them exactly.

    Providing you do that correctly, you should end up with a HJT log that says HJT is located in C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis\Crusty.exe

    If you do, then post the HJT log.

    Regards Howard :)

    Yes, Preston is about 35miles away from me.

    What was doing a scan of your F drive?

    I`m sorry, but I don`t understand what you mean by:

    I have no idea how to help with your printer.

    Perhaps a new thread in our Other Hardware forum would help. I suggest you say exactly what printer you have etc.

    Regards Howard :)
