  1. I am desperately looking for some help with the attached hikack log. My machine has been hijacked and I am not able to control it. Things are getting installed by themselves. All kinds of crazy things are happening.

    Need help fast. Started today morning as I was trying to download something.
    Antivirus says I have a trojan dropper

    My config is below:
    Windows 2000.
    Automatic windows updates - so it is current
    Norton antivirus - latest virus def files

    Hope I am following the rules - i am desperate - help pls.
