I have been having a lot of problem with internet explorer on my computer in recent weeks. I can't set a home page because as soon as I do something resets it, and whenever it is open Norton anti-virus goes nuts with stuff being detected. I was just wondering if I could post a log from "hijack this" to get help. I have been using Mozzila Firefox but I still keep IE around to open some webpages. thanks in advance.

hi bigboom

I'd suggest you go to the 'HijackThis Logs and Analysis' forum and look at some of the pinned posts. These will tell you the best way to prepare your system for HJT analysis.
In particular go throught the first stages of this post:


- that may be sufficient to recover your system on its own. If not then, referring to the other pinned posts for details, get the latest version of HijackThis and post a log.

Have you done other anti-virus scans? Another way to fix it might be to change it in safe mode.
