    Hi sasha,

    Did you run HijackThis?
    After the scan a dialog box wil appear where to save the log after you click the Save log button. Just click save and a text file will appear.
    Just copy the complete content of that file and paste it into your next post.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    hi sasha...
    lets go step by step....
    1. You have downloaded Hijackthis ??
    2. If no.. please download it from here
    3.If yes open the Hijackthis program. It should come with a window with command like "scan" being at bottom of the window.
    4. Press scan button which when pressed will give you a result and itself will change to save log.
    5. Press save log which will initiate another window (notepad) where the log will be present.
    6. copy the entire content and post here

    any more probz??

    Hi Sasha,

    it seems you are having problems posting the log here?

    If so,

    1. Place your mouse cursor anywhere in the log text that you see in notepad

    2. Press Ctrl+A (that is, while pressing the Ctrl button on the keyboard press the A button; if you do this right all the text in notepad will be highlighted)

    3. Press Ctrl+C (there will be no visual indication that anything occurred as it is behind the scenes )

    4. Start a reply here and place the cursor in the "Message" field on the web page

    5 Press Ctrl+V (You should see all the text appear in the "Message" window

    6. Click on the "Post" button on the web page

    If this was not what you were having problems with or if you still have problems let us know exactly what you are doing when it seems to not work right (and describe what it does :) )

    Hope this helps ;)
