  1. i have scanned and followed all the procedures required with my sisters computer. an avg anti-spyware log will follow shortly. could Howard or Rik lend their expertise to ensure that sister's computer is given a clean bill of health? thanks again, Ed James and sister Gloria.

    for some reason, this doesn't look right for a couple of reasons:
    1. the date. it should be 1/31/2007
    2. the action taken, should be removed, all but the toolbar.

    i am looking into the matter. maybe i have uploaded the wrong report, and if so i will upload the proper report. Ed James

    apparently it is a report that supercedes a previous report. it is the proper report. Ed James

    howard,
    i thought i disabled/enabled system restore properly, but i was probably mistaken if you see something in my HJT that suggests so. this is what i did.
    i went into safe mode and became administrator. while i was still in safe mode i went into control panel>system>system restore. i disabled system restore because the status box at the bottom was "monitoring" at first. i can't recall for certain, but i think i checked the box>apply>ok. a pop-up window asked me something, but i can't remember what. i remember clicking yes. it appeared to me that the system restore was disabled, because the status box at the bottom now read "turned off". i was unable to enable system restore because a pop-up window said that this needed to be done in normal mode. i rebooted into normal mode and enabled system restore, or at least i thought i did, because it once again said "monitoring" in the status box.
    i will double-check the system restore tomorrow when i go see her. i think i have to explore her user accounts and get a better understanding about what she has in there, as it's necessary to be administrator to make the needed changes.
    i received your pm so that's why i am explaining what happened. both my computer, and hers, work great thanks to you. Ed James

    It sounds to me that you did indeed disable and enable system restore.
