I've been having a few problems with my machine lately...It appears to be some sort of browser hack. The internet is running very slow and I get redirected to other websites every website I visit. Even when I don't have IE open I will have ie windows come up ads/websites. I'll also get what looks like windows system messages come up, but in the form of some sort of bs crap like "you have a friend on myspace, blah...blah...blah".
I have run Spybot, Ad-Aware, AVG Anti-Spyware, and AVG Anti-Virus to fix the problems but they don't catch anything (I ran this both in normal mode and safe mode). I even downloaded HJT to try and post a log, but everytime I try and save my log it doesn't save and the program just closes down. I've also tried using netstat -a/n to see what all is going on, but it closes immediatly on open. I even tried re-downloading HJT and opening it up in safe mode and it still closed immediatly after clicking the save log button.
This kind of has me picking my brain, b/c as I don't know everything about computers/computer software, I do know some. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. I'm sure I know how to prevent this in the future, and that is to keep my girlfriend off my machine! :thumbsup:

Try changing the name of Hijack This to lastchancescan. Locate the file, right click on it and choose rename. Then try to save log.

Thanks Buddy!
That allowed the HJT log to be saved. It must be very common, so I apologize if it comes up often. I'll head over and post the log in the correct forum.

Thanks again!
