Attached File  Hijackthis_log_file.txt   12KB   7 downloadsI've obviously installed some dodgy software and I now have a virus. Everytime I log on I keep getting 'Host Process for Windows Service has stopped working' messages pop up and they won't go away. - It appears to only happen when I am connected to the internet.

Can anybody help? It's a brand new machine so I'm really annoyed! I wonder whether it's deleted some drivers maybe?

I have uploaded my log from hijackthis.

I'd really appreciate your help!
