Hi there,
Y'all were great help last time.

my avast! program picked up some trojans and adware when watching videos. I ran Ccleaner and uninstalled the ad programs as far as I could tell (there were 4). Then I scanned for viruses with avast and kept coming up with trojans. The trj listed in the topics are the last ones I picked up. The ads are still coming up.
I tried to run hijack this, it scans but the error message need to close program always comes up before I can save a log file.

What should I do?

Hi sungura,

Download and install SUPERAntiSpyware. If you can, run the scan in Safe Mode and allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Then try and run HijackThis again. Have you tried in Safe Mode?
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
