Hello from Texas. I have visited this site numerous times in the past to get solutions for spyware infestations, and have downloaded stuff like MalwareBytes and ComboFix, but have never registered before. Today I am looking to post a HijackThis log, so I thought I would register. I am a technician (not IT) with a stable of about a half-dozen computers we use for instrument data recording and analysis, using OS's from Win2K to Vista, although most are still XP, and my last Win2K system may have just died. I have just acquired a new computer for my son with Win 7, and have recently set up a notebook with Ubuntu Linux, so I'm getting some exposure to those as well. He (my son) doesn't like our current ISP's AV program (McAfee), and is using Avast instead, and we have used CA and Norton in the past. I try to keep a current AV program as well as antispyware (Ad-Aware and SpyBot) running on the computers I use, but even with that, you can still get stuff you don't want, so you have to stay vigilant
