My neice got an HP mini for Christmas and already has it bugged up. I tried putting HJThis on it but it won't let me run anything. I get a "security tool" error for everything I try to run. I try to start in safe mode and it just loads regular. It's an HP mini with windows xp. I'm sure the virus started with Kazaa that I found installed. I tried to remove it but got the "security tools" error for that too. When we start it up a scan runs that finds numerous viruses. Also the Security tool thing.
