  1. Hi,

    I installed ad-aware and spybot s&d on my mom's computer to clean it off. When I ran ad-aware, it found a ton of crap (one of which was windupdate), but when I tried to delete them, ad-aware froze up. :eek: After that Explorer stopped working (I can't view folders, internet, etc.). I wound up deleting the files in safe mode, but the Explorer problem remains. Here is the HijackThis log:

    Thanks in advance :angel:

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Go Here and follow the instructions.

    It`s probably a good idea to print them out.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    After you have followed my post (as Howard suggested), reboot in Safe Mode

    If you can, UNinstall anything to do with:
    C:\PROGRAM FILES\BROADJUMP\CLIENT FOUNDATION\CFD.EXE

    Run HJT on its own and let it 'fix':
    C:\PROGRAM FILES\BROADJUMP\CLIENT FOUNDATION\CFD.EXE (if still there)

    Delete the bold files. When a directory is also bold, delete everything in it, including that directory itself.

    The Broadjump cfc.exe Is the software for NTL broadband and should not be removed otherwise the internet will not work.

    Hello RBS.

    I have taken a look at the link you gave me and I agree that a lot of the CFD.EXE entries are indeed bad news.

    However I do know that NTL broadband do use the Broadjump client foundation software as that is what`s running on my machine cause I have a 750kbps NTL broadband connection.

    It is also in Add Remove programmes in control panel.

    Regards Howard :grinthumb

    Ps it is installed via the NTL broadband set up CD
