Here is all the information you will need to get help from our team of volunteer experts in HJT logs, including where and how to get it:

Once you have posted it, please be somewhat patient since logs are taken in a first-posted, first-reviewed order and others may be ahead of you.

Thanks for your help.
I downloaded HJT and followed all of the instructions, but I cant get HJT to open. When I double click it a message appears and disappears quickly. The message says "warning" and then describes that I should be careful when using HJT. after this message disappears nothing else happens.

Dialers are considered to be trojans. Try running a-squared Free. That site has some good info on Dialers. See The Dialer-Problem in Detail. It is prudent to disconnect your phone line even when you turn your computer off if you use dialup until this problem is removed.

I have just successfuly installed HJT and created a log.
I have tried a-squared before and it hasnt helped, and I no longer have that program. I still have spybot- search & destroy and adaware.
Should I post my HJT log here or in another forum/thread?

Go to this forum and start a new topic. Give a little information about the problem. Once you have posted please wait for a reply. Your log will be answered in turn and adding a reply moves you to the back of the line again. It may take as long as 48 hours to receive a reply but then you will be helped quickly.

That was quite the log you posted StEvE21. I followed your adventures over there. Glad to see you got everything all cleaned up.
