My question is ,,, do i unistall spybot and reinstall it according to the BC tutorial ? After reading it i did go into advanced mode and unchecked 3 items, then switched back to default mode,,,, but i didnt know anything about the registry part or teatimer when i downloaded spybot the first time.

Are you having any problems with Spybot at this point? Remember, if it aint broke, dont fix it!

If you opt to reinstall it, I would avoid version 1.5. Its buggy. It can take a minute or more to startup.
1.4 is still the most stable build.
In the beginning there was the command line.

Your hijackthis log is posted here.

After posting a log you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log in the thread titled "Haven't Had A Reply In Five Days?".

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic until you are cleared by the HJT Team. If you still need assistance after your log has been reviewed and you have been cleared, please PM me or another moderator and we will re-open this topic.

Thanks for your cooperation and good luck with your log.
