I had to do a scan from its site - which it claims to have found more spyware that the other programs didnt (i saved a copy of the list if you want to read it)

I'm unsure of the scan you did from their site, yes please may I see the list of what was found. Would you also give me the link to the scan that you used? Will you post a new HiJackThis log for me as well.

my question is - do I just forget it and do another or will they have an issue with the validation too? ie how important is this validation?

It only has to do with zonealarm. The file was left behind from zonealarm being previously uninstalled and it did not uninstall fully, the new installer doesn't recognize the old file.

Have you installed Zonealarm on this system before?

My recommendation is to try Sygate or Kerio (I prefer either over Zonealarm anyway).

Michelle - as far as I know - we had never installed Zonealarm before:

The link page:

it says reccommended - but when i downloaded it twice without doing it - it would not download the entire file - errored on unzipping - hence why i said I had to.

The scan:

No problem, let's get rid of them :tazz: (Run Ad-Aware or EWido to get rid of the tracking cookies).

Copy everything inside the code box below (starting with REGEDIT4) and paste it into notepad. Go up to "File > Save As", then click the drop-down box to change the "Save As Type" to "All Files" Save it as myway.reg on your desktop:




[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar\WebBrowser\{0494D0D9-F8E0-41AD-92A3-14154ECE70AC}]
Double-click myway.reg and when asked if you want to merge with the registry click YES.

As far as the problem with the firewall, it's a problem with Zonealarm, not your system. I would advise Kerio or Sygate.

Your HiJackThis log stilll looks fine! Are you having any other problems?

Hi Michelle, - sorry for the delays - thank you for you time and patience with us.

did the myway and ran adaware / spybot. went ahead and bought spysweeper.

Finally did the HOSTS thing - there was already a HOST file there that was 700+k - i replaced it with the one you suggested - it's barely half that size.

Thanks bunches - don't think we are having an other issues.
