Hi icewater,

Sorry about the delay in responding to your post. If you are still requiring help please do the following:
  • You are running HijackThis from a temporary folder. When run from a temporary folder, the backups HijackThis
    makes may accidentally get deleted, so please put HijackThis into a permanent folder.
    Full instructions on how to do this can be found here:Detailed Explanation
    Brief instructions to create a permanent folder are:
    • Click My Computer, then C:\
    • In the menu bar, File->New->Folder.
    • That will create a folder named New Folder, which you can rename to "HJT" or "HijackThis".
    • Now you have C:\HJT\ folder.
    • Put your HijackThis.exe there.
  • Run HijackThis, click on the scan button
    Click on the Save Log button and save the log.
    Notepad will open with a copy of the logfile.
    Right click, select all, right click, select copy.
