    Tried to follow your instructions, but after re-running HijackThis, got a totally different list of objects. This time I didn't close the program so the list is still up. I re-ran Ad-aware first. Please advise. Thanks.

    Guys: maybe I did something wrong with my second post , but since I haven't heard anything for almost a week, I decided to try a different approach. No need to respond to my previous posting.

    I'm trying Norton Internet Security 2004 free for 15 days. Unless I hear that it's a terrible product, I'll probably end up buying it.

    Thanks for your help with my first posting.

    Hey Steve7,

    I completely missed your second post.

    Nothing terrible in there, but you can fix these:

    O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {BA52B914-B692-46c4-B683-905236F6F655} - (no file)

    O16 - DPF: {1D4DB7D2-6EC9-47A3-BD87-1E41684E07BB} - http://imgfarm.com/images/nocache/funwebproducts/SmileyCentralInitialSetup1.0.0.6.cab

    And if NIS suits your needs, I see no reason not to buy it.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    Did it and rebooted. Thanks for your help. If you have any suggestions for additional protection beyond NIS, please feel free to make them. Thanks again, Steve.
