Yes, I know I have a Hijackthis Log currently posted. But I want to post this now so I can (hopefully) fix it by the time the HJT is clean. I just realized that I was unable to make new folders when I was downloading Combofix earlier. I think it's somewhat my fault; after using TweakUI I deleted everything from the Templates section because it was annoying for the computer to load it every time I scroll over it. Maybe that's the reason the Make a New Folder doesn't work? Now when I click Make a New Folder (doesn't matter where I try to make it), the first time the cursor turns into the hourglass but nothing happens. Nothing happens after I click for second, third, or fourth times. The Share This Folder and Publish This Folder to the Web work, though.
I'm 100% sure this is not malware-related, and if someone could tell me how to enable making folders again I would appreciate it.
Thanks :thumbsup:

skyfuser,

Now that you have an open HJT log posted in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum, you shouldn't make any changes to your system.
Doing so, 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.

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.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to send me a PM.

Finished cleaning HJT log, but I still have problems.
I realize that whenever the option to make folders is initially click on it tries to load. But then there's a sound when there's a error (like someone was hit on the head). After I click, no loading occurs, just the sound.
Any ideas?
Thanks :D

Yes!!!!! After much stress, I am jumping for joy.
I was searching for the wrong problem. My whole New context menu was gone. So I searched for that, and a Windows95 troubleshoot with a registry file came up.
If anyone else has that problem click here to get the registry file. Use "Save Link As." But always remember to be careful with registry files :thumbsup:
