Hey guys, I had posted about this before and was told to post an HJT log - When I press the alt key my computer opens calc.exe, and the ctrl key attempts to open microsoft outlook express, I dont use outlook express so I uninstalled it and now when I press the ctrl key i get a message that reads:
"windows cannot find C:\PROGRA~1\MICROS~2\OFFICE11\OUTLOOK.EXE. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and try again. To search for a file, click the start button, then click search"
I use these buttons alot in other programs (games) and it is very frustrating to have my programs minimized every time I press ctrl or alt. Any advice you could provide would be very much appreciated.

This problem started around the same time as an initial adware infection I was having problems with so I think they might have been related. Here is the log:

Hello MikeMcSomething and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. The first thing we need to do is update the operating system.

Your operating system is extremely out of date. By not keeping the OS updated the computer is vulnerable to every infection on the net and in emails today and trying to repair an unpatched system is virtually impossible. For update purposes, Microsoft has even stopped supporting a system that is this far out of date. Go to the Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 1.a site and install Service Pack 1a.

Once that is done, go back to the Windows Update site and install all available Critical Updates but do not install SP2 at this time. This will patch the system with the most current security fixes and plug all the known holes which are present on this system. If you are not on a broadband connection the Service Pack can be obtained from Microsoft for a nominal shipping fee.

After all of the updates have been performed post a new HijackThis log back here using the Add Reply button and I will review it when it comes in.

Cheers.
