A directory, is just another name for a folder.
Create a directory on your hardrive to save HijackThis.exe.

"Open with??????" That is not a choice. I have to choose "Open" or "Open Folder" or "Close". Which one do I choose?
open with, and then choose compressed(zipped) folders.
the new window will show the files, but look to the left, and choose Extract
then you are using it the right way, extract to the folder you made by choosing to browse for that location. and once that is done, go to that folder and click on the "application" icon and you are off and running.
choose to scan and save log,
and each time you do any of these things, simply close the window that will be "behind" the present one, so you are working with just one window at a time, for good practice.
Once you have the notepad with the log, choose "edit" at the top, it'll highlight all the text, then either right-click in the text and choose "copy" or go back to "edit" and choose copy.
either way, you can then come back here, and open a new topic in the Hijack This logs and analysis forum and right-click "paste" and your log with be ready to post, add a few typed words of explanation if you like and preview if you want to see it first, or just add reply button at the bottom.
then you can go to the main page of the discussions, and try View new posts" and see your post at the top of the list.

Rigel: GreyWolf from Teck on the Myway board recommended Bleeping computer. When someone needs help he posts this web site. And all you have to do is click on it & it sends you to the right place. Miriam
I think the best course of action is to do the following:
Create a directory on your hardrive to save HijackThis.exe. A directory like c:\hijackthis. If you do not do this, you will not be able to use the backup/restore features.
Download HijackThis from:
HijackThis Download Site
Save this file into the directory you made previously and then run the program named hijackthis.exe. When the program opens click on the Config button, then click on the Misc Tools button, and click on the Check for update online button. When it completes checking/applying updates press the back button.
Now click on the Scan button and when it is finished click on the Save Log button. A Notepad window will open with the contents of this log. Click on Edit then click on Select all. Then click on Edit and then Click on Copy.
Create a reply to this post in the HighjackThis forum and right click in message area and select paste to paste the log into the post.
Someone will reply to you after reading this post. DO NOT fix any entries unless you understand what you are doing.
To see a tutorial with screenshots on using HijackThis you can click on the link below:
How to use HijackThis to remove Browser Hijackers, Malware, & Spyware
When you post, please include any information about what you have done to this point. Any info will help them to help you.
What this will do is to put you in direct contact with the experts that fix malware/spyware/adware problems. I want to assure you that any file on this forum is clean, and has been used by many people. I have them myself. You will need the LSP file.
Being attacked by the unethical people of the internet just plain (insert your favorite adjective here). Give these folks a chance and I promise you will not be disappointed. One note about the HJT team. They have many logs to review so please be patient.
Best wishes and good luck,
PS... May I ask who recommended Bleeping Computer, and what instructions have they given you to this point?
