Hi Grinler

I posted a thread (that I could not find) regarding Registry Keys and spyware infections. Thanks to you and jgweed for the responses and for the information and links. :thumbsup:

Thing is, I followed the steps until the "create a directory" part. I don't know how to do this step.
I saved HijackThis to My Documents and continued with the instrutions, but, I dunno if it worked.

Sorry to be a pain. :flowers:
Can you let a ditz know how to create a directory.

Thanks.

That thread appears to be here. As for making the directory, see if this is clear:

Download HijackThis from this HijackThis Download Site.

Create a folder on the C: drive called C:\HJT. You can do this by going to My Computer (Windows key+e) then double click on C: then right click and select New then Folder and name it HJT. Unzip HijackThis into this folder. Please delete any other copies (including the zip copy) so they can't be used. If required a tutorial is here.

Run HijackThis by opening the C:\HJT folder and double clicking on the Hijackthis.exe file. Click on the Scan button and then on the Save Log button. After specifying the save path (keeping the logs in C:\HJT is a good idea) NotePad will open. Right click and Select All, then right click again and select Copy.

Create a reply as a continuation of your original thread above, and right click in the message area and select paste to paste the log into the post.

Hope that helps.
Derfram

I'm chucklin' with ya, ditzy, forums for beginners is a riot of trial n' error. If it helps, Grinler had to tell me not too long ago that directory=folder. The directory is just an "old school" way of sayin' folder. :thumbsup:
patiently patrolling, plenty of persisant pests n' problems ...

Thanks for charing Scarlett. The way that I do it is very similar, except I add a little step. When you click the link that shows your participating topics, then (with IE), click File, and Send->Desktop as Shortcut. Now you may be thinking, why would I do that? Wouldn't it just show me the same thing everytime? The answer is no. When you click this link the next time, it will show an UPDATED list of your topics. It makes finding them very easy.
We are all curious like a cat. We wonder, we ask, we learn.
Please post back when a suggestion works, so that others may learn.

Brilliant! What a fantastic idea! :thumbsup: And yes JE I would not of thought that the page would be updated at first. But now that you mention it. I have B.C. on my Desktop for easy access. :flowers: Same diff., huh?
