Hi Everyone -
I think I have a malware, spyware, or virus problem, but I just don't know! I discovered my problem when trying to install Acronis Desktop to allow backups. I found that my machine would lock up and explorer.exe would quit/crash, leaving me a desktop sans start button and icons for the programs, etc. So far none of the commercial and free tools that I have found have solved my problem. I have also done the steps suggested here to check my computer - but I believe this is software related since I also have found that I cannot install other programs intended to look for spyware.

I really appreciate that this community exists to help eradicate these software villians!

Avoid making any major security changes to your computer until a member of the HJT Team can review your log, as these may invalidate the data.
I am sure our Team can help you.
