Ok, been trying to remove this for hours now....no luck. Please help me out. I appreciate it. Hijack log attached. Also, I tried to go to a command prompt (Vista) but it would not let me paste the entire below, it cuts it off and I cannot type anymore: @echo off attrib -h -s -r /s c:\SKYNET*.* del /f /q /s c:\SKYNET*.* exit exit I get to a promt by running CMD. I paste all of the above but only see: attrib -h -s -r /s c:\SKYNET*.* Then it locks up and never exits... Help! Thanks! Working on the rest of the 8 steps now...will keep you postes. Scanning now.
