If you have an open HJT log...you are not supposed to be seeking advice/suggestions and/or making changes to your system...until that log is settled.

thank you for the response, i did not follow protocol so I am sure I will not get a response., I posted a combofix log in my original message without being told to do so., I saw the notice after I had posted my request. does that make sense? this is why I am asking now., I am stupid when it comes to this computer stuff., but I don't have enough cash to pay someone to come over and help me., this is why i started hunting around and found this site., I would have deleted my original HJL request but could not find how to do that.,

I will wait a few more days and see if I get any responses to my original request. thank you, .,

Please read and follow these directions. Please note that the HJT team is very busy and can take awhile to respond to your post
Once you post do not add to it or bump your post. It will be answered in due time
Thank you


Please read the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". If you cannot complete a step, then skip it and continue with the next. In Step 6 there are instructions for downloading and running DDS which will create a Pseudo HJT Report as part of its log.

When you have done that, post your log in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix. After doing this, we would appreciate if you post a link to your log back here so we know that your getting help from the HJT Team.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your post or make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your log in the thread titled "Post in this thread when you haven't received an answer in five days.".

Do not send me PMs with problems that should be posted in the forums. Keep it in the forums, so everyone benefits
