oh someone i know thats really good with computers told me to delete them because he said when theres a dollar sign attached to the beginning and end its a virus attached to the file... i just restored them though. does my hijackthis log look ok? i am not having any serious problems but i can just tell something is wrong because when i sign on to aim it takes a minute to do so.
