after startup and after the desk top appears, i get an error message.

Runner Error - i'm lost
----------------------------------------------------
Runner file name (Compaq Connections.exe)
lack a '-' (the app id separator)

i click on ok, it goes away, and every thing seems to work fine. something must be askew. i just don't know what. it showed up after this ignorant soul ran a "spy hunter" scan. i don't know if it's related. i always think that if it was'nt there before and i do something, and then it appears, then it must be related to what i did. but then there i go assuming again. always gets me into trouble. i need some WOW (words of wisdom) pls & thanx oh masters of self in flicked disasters, lords of all knowledge.

Create a directory on your hardrive to save HijackThis.exe. A directory like c:\hijackthis. If you do not do this, you will not be able to use the backup/restore features.

Download HijackThis from:

HijackThis Download Site

Save this file into the directory you made previously and then run the program named hijackthis.exe. When the program opens click on the Config button, then click on the Misc Tools button, and click on the Check for update online button. When it completes checking/applying updates press the back button.

Now click on the Scan button and when it is finished click on the Save Log button. A Notepad window will open with the contents of this log. Click on Edit then click on Select all. Then click on Edit and then Click on Copy.

Create a reply to this post here and right click in message area and select paste to paste the log into the post.

Someone will reply to you after reading this post. DO NOT fix any entries unless you understand what you are doing.
