When I reboot my computer, it starts normally. All messengers, iTunes, and firefox opens normally, but I can't seem to access my start menu button, my documents, and recycle bin even if I use the "open file" option in the file tab of firefox. The browser just suddenly hangs itself.

I tried deleting drwtsn32 from the task manager processes list and my computer unfroze. Unfortunately, every time I try accessing My Docs or Explorer, drwtsn32 pops up again and everything's once again whacked. How do I permanently remove drwtsn32 or how do I fix the problem of my computer?

There's also this small red shield with a white X icon that pops up with the message: Security system has detected spyware infection)

I really need your help. :)

Here's my HijackThis log.



This log was taken during the non-hanging, non-MyDocs accessing, non-drwtsn32 present in task manager state of my computer

I fixed my own problem using this URL:

No longer needed to reach step 5.

and I couldn't figure out how to delete my post, so I replied instead.

RESOLVED.
