Hey guys,
I already cleaned out my main user name but when i run spybot, im getting a lot of hits for another user name that isn't used anymore. When it starts up it tells me I can't access my desktop so I can't install HJT to that location. I tried to install it into a new folder in My Documents, but that isn't working.

Like I said I don't use this account ever, I'm just worried that the virus I have will spread to the main account or slow it down again. I don't want all of SifuMike's work to be for nothing!

Any more help would be greatly appreciated.

You should just get rid that user. It may be encountering some problems from the aftermath of the malware you had. Just open the user control panel, click on the user and select delete. You should delete all the users files when prompted.
