It is a wonder that I can do as much as I do with my pc since all the books I have bought usually have For Dummies in the title. Hopeing someone can help me with this problem.

I am running windows xp home edition, using IE 6.0 or 7.0 not sure. The problem is when I am at a web site like Download.com and want to download a software program, when i click the download button a small window flashes (to fast to read) and then nothing. Same happens when I click to Scan my pc from the same site. This happens at any website for any product. Would appreciate any help on this one.

Hello and welcome to Geeks to Go!

Please download and run hijackthis Do a scan and then save a log. (In your situation, use a different computer to download HijackThis and then transfer it to the problematic one) Take the log and ATTACH IT (do not post) to your next post. In order to attach it, you will either need to change the .log extension to .txt, or you will have to put the log into a compressed (zipped) folder.

We do not like to post hijackthis logs in sections other than the malware forum as we do not want to encourage people to post malware issues in this forum.

I am not looking for malware. I am looking for what programs or combinations of programs might cause this behavior. If I notice any malware, I will redirect you to the malware forum.

If you post a hijackthis log in this forum, several trusted techs will come to your house and eat all of your Ritz crackers, Cheeze Doodals and any sweet pickles you have in your fridge. We will also put our feet up on all of your coffee tables. This is no joke. We'll do it. It's not pretty. :whistling:
