I am having a major problem. my computer was full of spyware, and adware and so on... It was running very slow and sometimes hackers were taking over. I bought Norton 2005 and installed it, it seemed to be blocking some stuff but the computer did not imporve since norton does not remove this stuff..
i ran Ad-aware and spybot and more recently HIJACK THIS. when the log came up i deleted everything but the norton stuff. (yes i am an idiot and i don;t know how hijack this worked). no backup was done neither.
I noticed later that my computer is much faster, however i can no longer access secured websites... HOTMAIL, YAHOO mail, banks and so on....
I was reading about this and i realized that i may have deleted some stuff from the log that i probably shouldn't have.
I don't know what to do.
I don;t want to reformat the computer and i am wondering if anyone has any ideas.
