[size=5]When on paltalk the other evening I found I couldnt see peoples pics on their profiles, there was nothing there at all not even a red cross. So I went to my son's msn site and his photo wasnt there either, also his picture gallery said loading but it never did.
I had this query on another forum but geek in training told me to come on here and give you this message.

There doesn't appear to be anything in your HijackThis log that would be causing the graphics problems. May I suggest that you start a thread in the Windows XP forum and let them know that your system has been deemed clean and the problem doesn't appear to be Malware related.

Any advice would be gratefully received. :whistling:

Please go here:

Malware Removal Guide


You will need a PC which can connect to the internet

Run all the programmes as advised then post a current Hijack This Log in a new topic in the Malware Forum

For the purpose of accurate malware analysis, Hijack This Logs are only dealt with in the Malware Forum. Posting them anywhere else will result in a delayed response

If you are unable to run any of the programmes, ask for advice in the Malware Forum

Can you copy and paste this in to the run box and press enter, reboot and try the images

regsvr32 %windir%\system32\shimgvw.dll

Have you tried System Restore to the day before the problem started? You will not lose any data files, or email. Start> All Programs>Accessories> System Tools> System Restore

Hello, Keith.

Jantie, has just recently gone throught two different threads in the malware forum. It's probably safe to assume that malware is not the case here. Both times after being given a clean computer status was told to make a topic here about the picture issues.

Hello, Johanna.

Since jantie has gone through the malware removal process twice now, the System Restore points dating farther back to before this problem will most likely no longer exist.
