I recently had problems with my computer, namely Internet explorer. I did a full System Recovery and loaded numerous programs before beginning:

1. Spybot
2. Ad-Aware
3. AVG Anti Virus
4. Sygate Firewall
5. ewido anti malware
6. Spyware Blaster.

Since going online i have had an Alexa trojan and a Tomato Virus. I am also having problems when i go on Internet Explorer. My computer shuts down soon after going on internet explorer. when I turn it back on and scan in safe mode there are no problems found. Then I go on regularly and it says, a malicious program has changed your home page. Finally, for some reason at the bottom of my screen a bubble keeps popping up that says:

You are runnning out of space on your Recovery D drive.

I have 2 drives running

1. © drive with 33.1 total space and
2. (D) drive with 4.08 total space
My hard drive is a 40 GB hard drive and I seem to be missing 2.1 GB of space. Where did my drive space go and how do I fix it?

Rerun both Adaware and Spybot Search and Destroy from safe mode, updating each program before you scan and setting both to fix what they find.

*AdAware SE: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download506.html

*Spybot S&D: http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html

Following that that I suggest you post a “HijackThis” log for expert assistance with your problem.

Read the pinned post in our “HijackThis” forum, here
Carefully read and follow all directions explicitly.

Following instructions run a log, and post it in following HJT forum,
at this link

Do not as yet attempt to fix anything by yourself using Hijack This as even what may seem to be a small mistake can render your op system inoperable.
Some files when in one folder may be fine while in another may be malware.

A member of our HJT Team will analyze your log, make recommendations and offer assistance.

It may take a period of time to get a response to the log you posted because the members of our HJT Team are kept very busy.
Please be patient as this team is manned by volunteers. They will help you as soon as possible.

Once you have posted your HJT log, please DO NOT make any additional posts in the HJT forum thread you created until you get a response from a member of our HJT expert team.

The first criteria they have when looking for logs that need replies are posts showing 0 replies. If you make an additional post, it will show as having 1 reply.
A team member, looking to see if a reply has been made might well assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and might not open the thread to respond.

So, make your post and wait for a response from a team member.
