  1. Without getting into the details of my stupidity I infected my computer with a couple of issues. I have files I can't delete that I know are bad and I'm getting pop ups at random times.

    Below is my hijack this log. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks :)

    i have looked through your log and i see this entry:

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [AXIS TONS THE MP3] C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Readme Live Axis Tons\First option.exe

    it doesn't look very nice to me so i wondered if you recognise the name, otherwise it is more than likely malware

    I am not sure what that is.

    I updated some profile information so I hope that helps. Thanks for all the quick responses so far. Please let me know if there is anything else I need to be doing to maintain proper ettiquette.

    you're doing well so far so you get top marks from me ;)

    i've been looking through google and it seems that the entry i mentioned earlier is malware so have hjt fix that entry

    i've been scrutinising the rest of the log and can't see anything bad so i think other than that one entry it's clean :)

    O wow that is great. I ran the fix and all my other problems worked themselves out. Was able to delete the files I couldn't and CCCleaner finaly ran through the entire scan without gettign stuck.

    Thanks so much for the fast responses.

    Is there anyway to help support this site?

    you're welcome :D

    as far as i know there's no sort of donation system but you can look around the forums and see if there are any threads that you think you can help out with :)

    another good thing is to just look at a thread or tutorial etc that sounds interesting and have a read, you can learn a lot on here
