The only thing I am wondering about is the owrds under my icons have black around them. I dont understand how that came about. Is that a certain setting? If so where is it located I can't find it. Also, can I delete the programs you had me install? Except for HijackThis that is.


Thanks a bunch man, I was going crazy before you came to the rescue.

Yes you can delete the programs I had you download, good idea to keep HJT around just in case

You can try changing your settings, if you right click on your desktop go to properties and check the settings in there

Your very welcome
Glad I was able to help :whistling:
