    Hello, I hope this is the right place to post. I have recently bought a new Pc with Windows Vista home edition. I have Norton Internet Security (free trial) plus SuperAntiSpyware free, and Hijack this.
    I have just downloaded Gmer, plus Rootkit unhooker. After running them my computer crashes. I have run a Hijack this scan, could somebody please tell me any possible solutions, as to whether this could be a conflict with Norton Internet Security or if I my computer is infected.

    Here is my log:

    Hello!

    There are some ... mistakes ... in what you are doing right now :

    1) HiJackThis has been run with its name . There's a lot of malware that hides because of this . Simply renaming the executable of HJT will help

    2) You have run HJT with limited rights . This happens due to User Account Control . Better run HJT as Administrator (with admin rights)

    3) If you have a real rootkit , HJT is helpless . It will be hidden in all cases

    4) Wilderssecurity forums doesn't provide HJT log file analysis and malware cleaning services . If you suspect that you are infected you must post in a forum that provides such services . There are many ... I recommend AumHa forums.

    Make sure to remove the the version of NIS already on your computer.
