PS Guard starts running its checks on boot-up, and I also get an 'illegal operation' dialogue box re outpostupdate. I am concerned about both of these, none of which has been removed by following the processes recommended on this site. In fact, since I installed and ran the various 'help' programs, my laptop has been running slower. Here is my HJT logfile:

Hi and welcome to GeeksToGo! My name is Sam and I will be helping you. :tazz:

I see you are running Hijackthis from your desktop. Please create a directory on your c: drive called c:\hijackthis and move hijackthis into that directory. Run the program from that directory from now on. It is essential that you follow these steps or certain important features of the program will not function correctly.

Once you have Hijackthis running from a within a folder please reboot and post a new hijackthis log.
