Currently I'm working my @## off trying to rid my computer of any and all bugs, viruses, demons, baddies, etc, but I have come across a problem when I try to execute adaware. About half way through the process, I get a indicator message at the bottom right of my computer screen, (with a yellow caution icon attached, similar to the post icon for this thread). The message says exactly this: "Ad-aware.exe - Corrupt File The file or directory \WINDOWS\System32\hccoin.dll is corrupt and unreadable. Please run the Chkdsk utility." Well, I ran Chkdsk and it produced a whole lot of foriegn (computer) language. at the end of the scan, it asked me if I would like to change/convert all of these files, but I said no. Should I have said yes? Is this the right way to resolve this issue? If you can help me, will you? Is this enough information, or am I just running around in circles. I have already downloaded, (and ran) spybot, cwshredder, highjackthis, and a free virus scan from Panda. If I am posting this thread in the wrong place I appologize, but I am sort of new to the whole security forum thing. However, I do think that what you people are doing is great and it is very inspiring. Many thanks!!!
