Hello from sunny North Carolina! I'm new to this computer stuff so please bear with me whilst I "learn myself" I downloaded ' hijack this' but what showed up was a page with a lot of square boxes and assorted strange symbols.(what is that stuff ) I have tried to find a way to unzip? this thing by reading through the forum and looking for FAQs to no avail, so as a last resort I thought I'd ask. Please help. I seem to have bolexed up this machine with spyware and probably some kind of browser hijacker in that it doesn't work like it used to. I have already installed 'spybot sd' and ' spywareblaster' plus 'spywareguardblaster' I've learned a lot by reading these forums, thanks for all the help.
