Thanks guys. I am investigating the ins and outs of Hijack This (that's how I actually found the forum). I already have a few questions. I did download and printed (I am sorry to say-huge waste of paper-didn't realize when I hit the print button) the entire Tutorial on HJT. Hoping that will answer most of my questions. If not, you'll see a new post on the appropriate forum "HELP!!!".
THANKS FOR THE WARM WELCOME!
