whenever i try to start hijack this, when its supposed to show the window where it asks me to scan and keep a logfile and other options, it suddenly disappears, tried a few times but still didn't work... anyone can help?

there's also another problem: when i boot up my OS, i always put a-squared guard as one of my start-up item, but when i wan to connect it always doesn't show the connecting dialog box, and then it doesn't connect at all. Only connects when i exit a-squared guard, anyone knows why?

hmmm, I think you have the coolwebsearch trojan. It has been known to close Hijack this, please use cws shredder also from www.merijn.org. Simply, extract it anywhere as long as it is also in its own folder. Run it and scan, it will hopefully remove enough of the virus so you can run hijack this.

Download here:

Then try running hijack this after you run cws shredder
