  1. of last night, after I booted my aunt off my laptop...I noticed something was a bit..odd...with my laptop...I opened up IE and the homepage had been changed to a ..*clears throat* porn site...i asked my aunt about it and she of course acted innocent...hah...anyways...i also noticed that my desktop background, had been changed from the picture I had, to a plain blue background...and the desktop is "locked" so I cant make any changes to it or the desktop background. I asked around and someone said something about it being a desktop hijacker ...I'm no novice to computers, but I am when it comes to viruses and what not, as I am cautious about where I surf the net these aunt however, is not. *frowns* I was reading around in the forums here and noticed someone had a similar problem..and I read the solution they were given, and downloaded HiJackThis and ran it...I wasnt quite sure what to do, as I've never used the program...but here is the log of what it showed.

    Also tried restoring to an earlier point than when my aunt was on, and it says it can't restore to specified matter which date I choose. Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated, as I'm totally clueless on how to fix this.
