after receiving some awesome help in the malware forum (you guys are great, by the way), machine seems clean of infections. however, i now have a small list of windows problems....i havent really tried too many things yet, so im not sure if this is everything that doesnt work, but this is what i know is wrong so far:
-taskbar is permanently hiding, cant get it to pop back up, cant move it at all, but i can see about two rows of pixels of it at the bottom of the desktop, and i can right click on it and get options.
-internet explorer kills immediately upon opening. the window flashes up, but then disappears
-windows picture and fax viewer doesnt open
-windows live messenger wont sign in
-windows is taking considerably longer to load when i boot up. not forever or anything, but it used to be really quick, now it takes like 2-3 min to get past the "windows is starting up" screen before the login screen.
heres the link from the malware forum, with a more detailed description of a couple of the problems, and the fixes i went through...
-ummm...and apparently it seems i cant copy and paste with ctrl+c and ctrl+v, at least in firefox. actually, i cant copy and paste at all in firefox. works in notepad at least though....
well, i cant copy a freaking link now...so rather than type it out, you can just follow my profile to my previous posts. i just joined this forum, so they are my only posts. ill post in it so its on the front page of the hijackthis logs go here forum. its titled "hijackthis log...malware, malware, and more malware"
thanks a lot for your help in advance, i appreciate your time...
