This is probably a weird question but I have to ask and did not really know where to ask but thought this would be an ok place to do that, sorry if it isn't.

When I look at Hijack This logs, there is often the path for the file that goes something like this, C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\My Documents\ whatever. On my system, thanks to the way my dad set it up, where that example says owner, mine says my dads full name. I do not feel right posting his full name on a website so I was wondering if it was ok to edit that log before posting it and replace his name with something else, is it?

In a way this seems like a stupid question because this could probably be done without anyone knowing it was done, but still, just wanted to check.

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

Thanks Chewy.

I figure the easy way to do it, since there would be so many needing to be changed, is to paste it into WordPerfect and just use the find and replace feature to have it automatically change his name to something else.

Thank you for letting me know that it would be ok to do this :thumbsup:
