I'm sure HijackThis issues have been posted here, and have been resolved. I just want to say that two of the "culprits" I've found are Dcads & superiorads. The company that owns them, Danube International Inc, also owns phatarcade.com, a free games site that some tell me is quite good. Could it be that 'someone' is using phatarcade to access our PCs? I've put it on the restricted sites list. Someone should nuke it. If you think it could be a source of HijackThis, can it be publicised?
