I have winslow xp on 2 desktops and winslow 98se on a third, all are networked together and I access the internet with Direcway via their 6000 system. Recently one of my xp machines started to lock up for a few seconds (anywhere from 5 to 15) and then would act normally for a while. It would do this approximately 4 time per hour. I ran my virus program (AVG supported) and even upgraded to 7.0. I still have the same problems. After I upgraded to 7.0 AVG found 2 Trojans and a virus, quarantined all and I deleted them, but the problem persists. I tried a couple of the online scanners but they didn't find anything. I use bigfoot as an email address and about the same time I started receiving alerts that email sent from my bigfoot address had failed to be delivered, I receive several of these alerts a week, but I haven't sent any email to any of the recipients nor do I even know them. I have a feeling my system has been hijacked but don't know how to confirm this.
Please help,
Jerry <_<

Welcome Jerry <_<!

Let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log back here with the results.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.
