Are you refering to hijack this? If so, you can export the results to a text file and copy it to a post.

Maybe we can save you some time.

Any major symptoms?
If it is just doing annoying things like redirecting you its probably just adware. But an external protocol request could be accessing you or calling home to download more malware. If you have Spybot Run a scan with it, if you don't have it http://www.spybot.info/en/download/index.html.
What AV do you use? Make sure you have the latest updates and run a scan. If you don't have any AV protection try Avast! Antivirus, it scans all files downloaded through P2P programs like limewire and Bittorrent.

It was the protocol that worries me. I know a wee bit about computers, and am well used to everyday ad and spyware. I ran AVG which is my anti-virus and AD-Aware which is my anti-spy. AVG found nothing expect a shell.exe change, which is not a worry and as far as I know changes all the time anyway. Ad-Aware found run of the mill spyware which I removed, I will try Avast! I should have known better...

Good morning. Well Im ran avst! on boot scan, no problems thus far, spybot search and destroy found nothing more than random tracking cookies. Thankyou for your help, I will post my log. I am using Mozilla Firefox as I believe it is a lot more secure than IE.

Now that your log is properly posted, 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 helper 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.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

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.
