Hi,

I am going through the instructions on the Hijackthis log page (http://www.geekstogo...?showtopic=2852) and when I get to Step One: Scan for Spyware/Adware with Ad-Aware, it finds 9 items (3 reg keys, 6 reg values) and eventually freezes in "Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Shared DLLs...
I tried using Webroot's Spy Sweeper but it freezes in boot.ini...

I am guessing that I have some kind of spyware but i can't get past here!!

Thanks for any help!!

Proceed to the next step then. Make note of this problem and see if you can run Ad-aware after we are all done with the problems (if you have any).
