    Hi Yvonne :

    What kind of "deciphering" are you looking !? The 1st thing I noticed is there is
    no antiVIRUS program mentioned in the log !? IF true, this is very unwise . Would
    recommend you seriously consider getting the FREE Avast Antivirus Home
    Edition, with very good Info at www.avast.com/eng/avast_4_home.html .

    The next thing I noticed is that you MAY have 1 antiSPYWARE/antiTROJAN
    program, namely Spybot, which has NOT been a top program for a couple of yrs;
    would recomend you get the good & FREE Version of "SUPERAntiSpyware" from
    www.superantispyware.com AND the "FREE" Version of "Malwarebytes' Anti-
    Malware" from www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php . IF you are able to download &
    successfully install either or both, "Update", then run a "Full Scan" and have the
    program(s) "Delete" what they find .

    The next thing I noticed is you have the very security-vulnerable Adobe Reader;
    I recommend you uninstall it, then get the safer "Foxit Reader" from
    www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf/rd_intro.php .

    The next "Item" is you have an extremely outdated version of Java; should
    uninstall ALL "Version/Update" you have of this program . The latest version
    appropiate for your Operating System is "Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 5.0 Update 16 " from http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index_jdk5.jsp .

    Lastly, I noticed the "Limewire" P2P program ; having these types of program(s)
    on a computer QUADRUPLES the Chances of getting very bad "Malware" on a
    computer . I recommend you uninstall it and possibly use the safer "Shareaza"
    program ONLY from http://shareaza.sourceforce.net .

    Thanks for that

    THe problem I have is that when I use the run and go to use the cmd line, it tells me it is being currently used by another program,,,, this happens with anything that i put in the line to run,,,,

    I will work on the issues you pointed out tonight and do another scan and re post the log file

    Thank you for your prompt response :)
