I downloaded Hijackthis, then I needed an unzipper. So I downloaded one. But then I thought I need to download another one. So I downloaded "Unzipper" and it wouldnt unzip the file I needed. It also had viruses in it according to avast. So I thought I deleted it, but when I right clicked it was still there. I finally got it all gone. And then I downloaded "Freezip" but it wont unzip the file that I need. ANd by certain other files it has the Unzipper (virused) icon next to some files. My computer also wont completly delete hijackthis. So I need to delete Hijackthis and all my unzipping stuff, then redownload hijackthis, and freezip. Ahh Im about ready to shoot my computer!!!

Hi kelton

Not real clear about what you have done but do not delete programs. You need to uninstall them from Add/Remove programs.

If you need a good Zip program get WinZip or PKzip from Download.com.

Leurgy is right about the add/remove programs which can be found in the control panel. Winzip is also a very good program to unzip files.
