  1. hey
    after i tried to install an "unlegit" copy of avast! antivirus, I believe I received a virus on my computer.
    After installation, i rebooted only to find my computer extremely laggy and my explorer.exe turning off and on and my taskbar/desktop disappearing and reappearing.

    I did a Hijackthis and this is the log
    thanks for any help... and also as of now, i dont have any antivirus turned on because my norton 08 is on a cd and my dvddrive doesnt work..
