I got some message (sorry I can't quote it verbatim) telling me I could be infected with something. I immediately started running my Ad-Aware, SpyBot, CCleaner. They all said they found potentially dangerous things and took care of them, or so I thought.
Pressed for time, I just started using Firefox, which worked for a while, but it would eventally do the same thing. So, I'd run the programs again, and start all over again.
Today, I have time to finally try to post a Hijack This log. I started following the directions and, using Internet Explorer, cannot get to the site to download DDS. It says "cannot display the page". Running a connection check turns up no problems. I tried Firefox, and it's giving me a message that Firefox is already running--which it isn't.
I've now re-started my computer for about the 10th time today and need some advice. Please, oh generous and knowledgable people, help me... Thanks.
P.S. I also find that Internet Explorer can't get to my email (Comcast) or some other sites I frequent, unless I go into the history and find the page. When I click that, it works.
