I dont really know how to describe this, or know if its common, or whatever, so i guess ill just say how i see it. Every time that i reinstall windows and then begin the process of installing my programs once again, i seem to come across the same problem at one time or another. My big issue is that I eventually lose control of my programs, or they are deleted without my knowledge at all. I have tried all different kinds of anti-virus, spyware, etc. so i am just stumped at this point. Tonight, I had installed adaware, and then the next time i turned on my computer i clicked it, and it said that the link was not correct, so i right clicked the shortcut, and checked properties and found out that it had been changed to something that I did not input. I am on a different computer right now, so this first part is just trying to figure out if you have heard of anything like this before. Once I get back to my computer, I can run all those programs to show you my results.

You should start here:


run all the programmes as advised then post a current Hijack This Log to the malware team

If you have a malware issue anything you try to fix it until you are clear of malware will be circumvented

I suggest locking your profile when you are away from the computer so your 3 year old can't mess with it and let them use another profile. Either that or lookup "psychiatrist" in the yellow pages. :tazz:
