PLEASE HELP. ALL OF A SUDDEN, THAT RIDICULOUS "SPY AXE" IS TAKING OVER MY CPU. IT HAS TAKEN OVER MY HOME PAGE, AND IT'S CONSTANTLY ADVERTISING AND SUGGESTING THAT I BUY ITS SO-CALLED ANTI-SPYWARE : EITHER "SPY AXE" OR "SPY TROOPER" OR SOMETHING.

I NEED HELP DESPERATELY. I'VE TRIED A FIX AT SPYWARRIOR.COM, BUT I STILL HAVE PROBLEMS.

THANKS, MIKE

Hi my name is David Posted Image

Click here to download HJTsetup.exe
Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.
  • Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
  • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
  • Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the "Select Addition Tasks" dialogue.
  • Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
  • Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
  • At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
  • Click on the "Do a system scan and save a log file" button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
  • Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
  • Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
  • Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

David
