    C:\Document and Settings\Name\Local Settings\Temp\AtGames.exe
    I put it in the virus vault all the time but it's always there again :'(

    I read through that post but someone mentioned it was very important what file it was in.
    I deleted temp interent files/cookies if that's what you mean

    that's definitely my problem, but I don't even have hijackthis and aren't all computers different?
    are you saying I should
    download cwshredder or
    download hijackthis and take the analysis to thetechguys forum?

    Hi ronjor,

    No offense meant, but I have removed the contents of your post #10 (the sample HijackThis log from the other forum) as you had provided a link to that thread in your previous post #8. Providing a link to a thead is preferred rather than posting the entire contents of a thread (or any article on the web). I realize that Dustin32op said he was unable to get the link to work and that is why you posted the thread from the other forum, but it would be better if Dustin32op were to go to one of the spyware/malware removal forums and post their own HijackThis log. I hope you understand. :)

    I would also like to add a word of caution for anyone reading another person's HijackThis log and trying to follow another's advised fix for the infection(s) shown in that log. Since logs will vary given the type of infection, different operating systems, configuration settings, etc., the best and safest course of action would be to go to one of the spyware/malware removal forums and post their own HijackThis log for analysis, if after scanning with their other security applications have not cleaned their computer of the infection.

    A list of spyware/malware removal forums that do provide HijackThis log analysis can be found in this link: http://a-sap.org/

    Regards,

    I think I was in over my head so I had it looked at by a pro. he got rid of the virus but now certain sites won't work on the internet, such as my hotmail.

    snap,

    That is alright by me. I do realize other logs have no relation to the problems posted here.

    he may have put up your security settings in IE, and it could be that you need to put hotmail in your trusted zone so it will accept cookies, maybe someone could say if you need cookies for hotmail?
    what happens when you try and go to hotmail?
    which other sites dont work?
