  1. Hi, I'm new to this board and would like to thank you guys in advance for your help. I recently ran scans with AVG Anti-virus and Ad-Aware and found that my Dell laptop was infected with various viruses and threats. After deleting and removing those infections and threats with AVG and Ad-Aware, I also ran CCleaner to remove unused and temporary files. If anyone can look over my Hijackthis log and let me know if there is anything else that might be questionable or isn't supposed to be there I would appreciate it. Thanks again in advance!

    Your HJT log is clean.

    Turn off system restore.(XP/ME only) See how HERE.

    Now, turn system restore back on. This will have deleted all your old restore points and any nasties that are in them. It will also have created a new, clean restore point.

    If you have any further virus/spyware problems, please post in this thread.

    Regards Howard :)
