Hey how's it all going,


Anyway I'm like new to this site, and like have got some serious issues with my comp, Like so bad I can only start it in safe mode, or else it will keep crashing.

It seems I have an Ace bot trojan, that has affected DR watson program, (as message Dr Watson Postmorterm debugger used to always appear). I have used spybot, spy sweeper, adware (though I can't update it due to lack of internet accesibilty) and hijack this. I am going through logs on the net, trying to work out which registry keys are legit and which are bullbleep, Then I was going to use killbox. Please advise is this correct course of action to take to solve this problem, or should I simply post my hijack this log on this site before doing anything else

Have you been trained in the use of HijackThis?
If not, you should submit a log for examination.

One thing, about the use of HijackThis, you must NEVER attempt to fix stuff using HijackThis, until someone who is experienced at reading the log outputs has a chance to review it.
Fixing the wrong items can make a computer unbootable.

Spaces, extra characters, spelling, file location, plus numerous other subtle changes, all make the difference between a good, or bad, file entry.

Hijack this is an ennumerator.
It lists what is found in certain areas of the registry, or system files, in an easily accessible manner, so that those familiar with the use and reading of HijackThis logs, and windows programs, can determine what is infecting the machine, and how to remove it.

It is not a removal tool.
It will indeed remove the entries listed, but that does not cure the underlying problem.
The problem must be properly identified first, and cured, prior to removing the entries with HJT.
Otherwise you leave the infection, and remove the keys which are needed to identify and remove it .

Removing entries in HJT before the problem is properly identified, and correct removal instructions posted, can make the problem undetectable to other detection and removal tools.
Do not have HJT fix anything without consulting with someone with HijackThis logfile knowledge.

Hijack this should only be used to clean up the entries left behind, after you have properly removed the offending program, file, trojan, worm, hijacker etc.
And this usually requires help.

I suggest you post a HJT log for our Team to examine.
They'll take you through the fix, step by step.

Read How to post a HijackThis Log.
Please read, and follow, all directions carefully.

Then, run a log, and post it in the HJT forum, at this link. Do not, fix anything, yet.
A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.
It may take a while to get a response, because the HJT Team are very busy. Please, be patient, these people are volunteers. They will help you out, as soon as possible.

NOTE:
Once you have made the post, please, DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum, until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies. If you make another post, there will be 1 reply. The team member, glancing over the replies, might assume someone is already helping you out, and will not respond. So, just make your post, and let it sit there, until a team member responds. This way you will be taken care of, in the most timely manner.
