I tried posting a topic about my slow laptop with an older version of HiJack, but then I was prompted to download a newer version before I post my problems on the forums-- which is what I did, but now I don't have the option to run HiJack as the administrator when I right click on the icon.

Otherwise, I'm having problems with my McAfee anti-virus and SpyBot S&D. The system scans I do last about forty minutes to an hour or two, but at various points during the scan either of these programs seem to freeze. The results either show that I don't have anything wrong with my computer or I only have DoubleClick adware problem. Results also say that the scans took ten to thirty minutes long when they took a longer time.
I've also had McAfee randomly turn off the protection for "Computer & Files" and "E-mail & IM".

Please help?

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<==

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then post back here and we will provide you with further instructions.

Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.
