  1. I've been trying to read up on stuff and I went ahead and downloaded hijackthis and changed the file name and made a log as well. I need to know what is going on. I have have this Crital System Error on my toolbar for a while, but I recently started getting Symantec Email Errors too so I'm trying to get get things cleaned up. Appreciate the help.

    Your system is infected with several pieces of malware.

    Please copy and paste these instructions into notepad and save it to your desktop.

    Now,
    Reboot your computer into safe mode. Do this by pressing F8 repeatedly immediately after startup. Be sure that 'safe mode' is selected.

    After your computer is started up (in safe mode), open the notepad file on your desktop and then run HiJackThis with no other programs open except notepad.

    Have HiJackThis scan and save a logfile.

    Have it fix the following entries (if there) by placing a check in the box:

    O21 - SSODL: bonspells - {11853d5f-f894-4cc7-bbc3-fc7a9dcfd896} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\okkmtv.dll

    Go into the Windows Task Manager by pressing ctrl+alt+delete. End the following processes (if there):

    C:\Program Files\QualityCodec\pmsngr.exe

    C:\Program Files\QualityCodec\pmmon.exe

    Now, go into C:\Program Files\QualityCodec and delete the following files (if there):

    pmsngr.exe

    pmmon.exe

    Now you've made it through the hard part. Just reboot your computer into normal mode, run HiJackThis (scan and save a logfile), and post the logfile here.

    Cheers
