I'm going through my startup programs and found aolserviceshosts.exe. Goggle'ing it, it looks bad. If it is, how do I get rid of it?

Hello crystaldon,

Yes it appears it may be bad. I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT forum. If you are unable to run and/or post a HJT log, then post that in your initial post in the topic you create in that forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).

Regards,

Ax

Thanks Ax238, but I think I've already solved my problem. I found this thread:

http://forums.maddok...?showtopic=8877

...and did the fix manually. I had already gone through the "read this before......" instructions, but none of the tools got rid of it. Thanks again for the help,

Don
