    I have a problem that i have no idea how to solve. I have an icon that appears even after i delete it. It's not affecting any of my files but it is associated with the website "" and it keeps kicking me off line.

    I don't know what to do! It is so annoying! I do online classes for college and i can't do them because of getting kicked off.

    I get an icon with a big X onit, and with the word "default" under it. Then it says do you want to stay connected to the internet. It doesn't matter if you answer yes or no, it's going to kick you off regardless.

    PLEASE, PLEASE tell me someone knows how to get rid of this! I CAN"T TAKE IT ANYMORE!!! Please help me. I did read some of the other threads and i thought i was the only one but i guess i'm not because it looks like there are a lot of people having the same problem as me.

    THANK YOU in advance!

    I use Ad-Aware 6 and it doesn't seem to find it and neither does my virus scan, McAfae. I also have windows XP

    Hi misty, and welcome to Wilders.

    Please follow ALL the instructions in this link:

    Once you have downloaded HijackThis, create a permanent folder for it on your C: (call the folder whatever you'd like) then unzip Hijackthis.exe into the new folder (do not put it in a Temp folder or desktop).

    Then open Hijackthis and run it by clicking on the Scan button. When the scan has finished, the "Scan" button will then change to a Save Log button. Press the "Save Log" button and save it to a location you can easily find it. Open the saved log with Notepad, and copy and paste the entire contents of the log here in your next reply post.

    Please do NOT fix anything in Hijackthis by yourself. Most of what it lists will be harmless and even essential. Someone will review your log and reply back with instructions on what needs to be fixed.
