  1. Hi guys, for some weird reason I'm facing loads of problems on my system and I'm not sure if they are all related or not. I can't run regedit, task manager, can't even view hidden files and folders no matter how many times I set teh folder options to display them and for some reason I'm unable to install some programs the installers just seem to vanish when I start.

    I downloaded HijackThis - renamed it to crusty after installation and ran it. I got a log message which is attached along this here. What could be wrong man - I'm facing this same problem on other systems as well as though its contagious or so :confused: - any help woudl be greatly appreciated.

    Hello paritycheck

    You have some nasty infections in the log, and you´ll probably have more, we can´t see in the log.

    I´ll therefore suggest you Reboot to safe mode with network.

    Then see if you can follow the below guide -

    Please run the steps in this guide:

    Nb. Have you ever considered replacing Norton?
    Their products are apparently not good enough to clean a computer.
