ia m having troubles with some viruses i think i have i got in between norton subscirption and buy the user unfriendly kaspersky.so i did system restore and got my free 90 days nortons bundled in my pc. ive got avg, spybot,highjackthis, autoruns, and a few others.
I cannot run panda, or mcafee even though ive tried to download and use it form cnet ,geeks, and bleeping comp.
trend micro works but the third time it came up clean.i have wierd processes running having trouble finding thier path and if thier malware or i need them to run pc. i tried to eliminate svchost.exe since thier are 6 of them running under network, admin, and system. my comp had vital error and neede to reboot.
i dont know. i think my best option is to go buy xp and wipe my system clean and do a clean install, but i dont have 150.00 bucks right now ,
besides id like to know whats going on here. it feels like im being watched by something from adult sites or something. id like to know how to prevent it in the futre and see how to use the right scans and virusware combo to run safe on the net. im scared to pay my bills cause i think something is tracking my net moves. idk this is wierd.
what do you need from me ? highjackthis log? autoruns log? want to know what processes i have running?let me know so we can kill this thing

thank yoiu for your time,

Hello averageuser

Welcome to G2Go. :)
* Click here to download HJTsetup.exe
  • Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.
  • Doubleclick on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
  • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\Hijack This.
  • Click on I agree
  • Then Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
  • Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
  • Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
  • DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
