Attached File  hijackthislog.txt   8.51KB   181 downloadshey , I got this problem last night, I have done a 72 hr system restore and defragged, and still no go, error report for both windows explorer (explorer.exe)
and drwatson prompts repeatedly come up, i know this problem has been common, but am unsure on how to fix it! I deleted Drwatson but still have the explorer fault. I need help immediately as i require computer for work!
error report was querying various appcompat.txt files, from my local settings temp folder, don't know if thats anything, i delete it and its replaced with another . anyways I am totally lost! I have attatched my hjt as a file!
please get back to me with a fix, Reguards Keoh!

First, stop deleting things.

Second, Please go to the malware forum in my signature and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE .

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty, then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.
