I finally am using HJT and posting to this site. I hopefully followed the instructions on posts and also the procedures on scanning, etc. I updated Windows but it did not need any real updates (I selected two optional software updates). On this machine, Norton 360 still has about 150 days to go and has it's firewall active. I've used PrevX's free scan...did not find anything. Only Spybot finds:
[SBI $B71E4FFD] Program directory
[SBI $51E6ABA2] Program directoy
Tracking cookie [Internet Explorer: ******]
Internt Explorer [******]: Cookie:*** ***@ad.yieldmanager.com/
****** - stands for a personal first & last name (omitted above)
I've used AFT-Cleaner to clean out all temp files, etc. Scanned with spybot and Ad-Aware. Ad-Aware found a bunch of cookies that I deleted. I am here including the HJT log as an attachment in the hopes of nipping this virus/spyware/trojan...whatever it is.
Thank you in advance!!!
