Argh, lately I noticed problems with my computer. Including a really bad case of computer slow down. I ran Norton Anti-virus and GUESS what I found? WoWexec.dll, and Adware.Purityscan.exe. Trojan Horse, Dialer.Trojan... I deleted both at first. Then redeleted them, and then redeleted them. Then downloaded Adware SE (Latest version) deleted Adware.purityscan, and the others they keep coming back!

I just bought this computer, and I haven't been on any type of PORN, and I don't even have a copy of windows because after all I am a Noob at computers.

Also I have problems with:

Trojan Horse

I am not too computer savy nor very experienced, all I do is play games thats it.

I read about all this stuff about editing your registry and all that but I am too computer illiterate to actually even atempt to.

I have Norton Installed, also Adware SE Personal (From another forum's reccommendation) Also just downloaded HiJack this. - Windows XP - SP2 <---

Please someone help! I don't want to dish out another 600 dollars for a new computer!

Please read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". When you have done that, post a log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, not here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post the log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. Please include the top portion of the HijackThis log that lists version information. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix.

It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy. Please be patient as they are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have no replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response, a team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log here.
