Hi,

I recently asked for help in solving this and was told to search for the solution through the search function and if that fails then post this HijackThis report here.

Everytime I load the computer it pops up a message saying that my p2esocks file is missing. This started immediately after I ran Ad-Aware and got rid of those files that came up (excluding a few I identified as Microsoft files). I restored the files thinking I had deleted something I needed but the message is now coming up at startup.

I have since ran Ad-Aware twice, deleting those that came up (excluding the Microsoft ones), I ran a Virus Scan with my anti-virus program, I ran an online virus scan using Housecall, and I have rebooted. The error message is still coming up.

I downloaded HijackThis and this is what came up:
