Both of you do this:

Create a directory on your hardrive, to save HijackThis.exe, called c:\hijackthis. This is a mandatory step, for the backup and restore functions, of HijackThis, to be able to work.

Download the latest version, from here.

Read the pinned post in the HJT forum, here

Then, run a log, and post it in the HJT forum. Do not fix anything, yet.
A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.
Please, be patient, these people are volunteers. They will help you out, as soon as possible.

jpbc9999,

you aren't the only one who has had problems before coming to this sight, there be thousands and still more that don't know about here to get a little online help i was only replying to the original message on which i ended up re-installing my windows as i had no other idea on what to do because i wasn't at this sight then. and only came accross this sight because my CPU was always running at 97%.
i know this reply might think i'm a little complainer but i'm just trying to explain here on why my message was the way it was. yes there may be a reason for what the problem is and there could be a simple fix for it. my message can be ignored or read for ideas.

Izzy.

i suggest you get a copy of "HiJackThis" and do a scan and post a log into the forrum for "HiJackThis Logs" not this forum. and wait a couple of days because there is a lot of people nedding help removing viruses.
Its free.
