Hello,

I usually use firefox to open my internet, but today I went to IE instead. When I open the app, I got this notice that my browser may have been infected. So I noticed this maxiwe.com Never heard of it. So I tried to delete it. So I downloaded hijackthis and tried to open it. I got a error stating that another instance of this was being installed. But I wasn't installing nothing. So I restarted the computer to install the program. I noticed that my hard drive was completely full. But it's not. I have over 300g to be used. I finally installed HJT but I recieved this error when I scanned using hijackthis (for some reason your system denied access to the host file). So I cant delete maxiwe or open HJT. Please advise. Thanks

As this issue appears to be resolved I am closing the topic. Please send me (or any other Moderator) a Personal Message (PM) if you would like the topic re-opened.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
