I rencently had my laptop hijacked with some sort of Malware/Spyware. I followed all of the instruction on your site regarding removal. Now all seems back to normal except that I cannot launch Internet Explorer. It still gives me the message below. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. My OS is Vista 64-bit and I am using Windows 2007.

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues and what you have done to resolve them.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
