I wasn't sure where to ask this so sorry if it's the wrong place but, my firewall keeps saying 'Application Hijack' and when I look at the log it says it's critical and I was just wondering what should I/can I do about it?

Again sorry if this is the wrong place to ask but I got some great help here last time and I didn't know where else to go :thumbsup:

Download here HJT 1.99.1. Save it on your Desktop. You will need now to unzip hijackthis.exe to a permanent folder, such as c:\hjt . This has to be done as HijackThis creates backups. You may need to use these backups.

First create a new folder:
A. Click My Computer icon on your desktop
B. Click C: drive
C. Click the File menu --> New --> Folder, a folder "New folder" will be created.
D. Rename it HJT

Unzip hijackthis.exe to the c:\HJT folder.

Double-click on hijackthis.exe and when the window opens, put a checkmark in the box at the bottom that states Don't show this frame again when I start HijackThis.

Then click on the button labeled None of the above, just start the program. You will now be presented with the main HJT screen.
Press the Scan button and then when it is done, the Save Log button. Save this log on your desktiop, and then copy and paste the contents of the notepad it opens as a reply to this post.
Everyday is virus day. Do you know where your recovery CDs are ?
Did you create them yet ?

What precisely does the log say? It will generally provide information about what program is triggering the hijack, etc. This information may allow you to fix the triggering application's defaults, etc..
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
