I recieved a free copy of Windows Vista Business from Microsoft, and burned it onto a DVD.

Now, I also received a product key. I have no clue if it's standalone, or an upgrade key, but will both work if I'm upgrading?

I see you have a HJT log posted in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum.

You shouldn't make any changes to your system, while your HJT log is posted, as that could change the results of the posted log, making it difficult to properly clean your system.
At this point, the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

After your log has been reviewed and you have been cleared, have a look at the instructions in How To Perform A Clean Vista Install Using A Vista Upgrade Product Key.

I'm closing this topic until you are cleared by the HJT Team.
If, after your log has been cleaned, you still need help, please PM a Moderator and we will re-open this topic
