Hi, and thank you in advance for any help you can give me.
I am running Vista Home Premium, Service Pack 1.
1. Most recently I tried to run some online scans (HouseCall and BitDefender.) Housecall did not complete, and BitDefender says I don't have admin privileges. (I do. I thought. I am the only user on my pc, and I have two profiles--one with admin privileges and one without, which I usually use to surf the web.)
2. When I use HiJack, I am told my system denied write access to my hosts file, even after I followed the directions regarding deleting the host it showed originally. Since doing that, a hosts file shows up in the notepad, but not in the app where I can fix it. (Maybe it's actually okay; I don't know.)
3. I use CCleaner regularly; I have AVAST.
Again, thank you for your time. Let me know if you need any more information. I realize there are probably other things wrong, but this is what I have noticed.
