  1. So he tells me he likes to download games a lot from limewire, so this is were I think he is getting all the viruses. He can't download AVG, it gives him an error everytime, same with every anti-virus and anti-spyware... He can't even redownload windows xp. I am trying to talk him into buying a new hard-drive, and windows XP disc perhpaes a newer more secured version. But here is the hijack this log.
