I recently had and attack of this system doctor which I managed to resolve without buying anything. I downloaded Hyjackthis but it was not much help. My norton stopped the initial attack and kept system doctor off my PC. But it snuck a bundled bogus ad folder into my progams called truecodec. It was hyjacking my internet explorer and wouldn't let me go Cnet giving me false alerts a redirecting me. I tried web root spysweeper, spybot, and spyware blaster, and antiv free virus download as well. I read up a little more at spynomore.com. They had a pretty detailed description. In add remove programs I found one call internet explorer security 2006. I removed it. But I had to go to safe mode to uninstall the truecodec bogus folder. Inside were three things I had to uninstall one at a time reboot in safe mode and go back and uninstall the next. Then lastly I had to go back in safe mode just to delete the folder it self. Everything is working now with no false aerts or hyjacking. I may have deleted 1 or 2 not terribly important things in my registry for tool bars in the process but everthing is working ok now. Has anyone heard of "safety alerter 2006". I found it in my programs and I can't find anything on it. Also has anyone tried that registry Mechanic top download at cnet? Any good for this sort of stuff? thanks

Hello Silly Rabbit

...I downloaded Hyjackthis but it was not much help.

Are you trained in the use and investigation of the entries listed in the log this program generates?

HijackThis is an advanced tool that requires advanced knowledge about the Windows Operating System. Most of the log entries are required to run a computer and removing essential ones can potentially cause serious damage such as your Internet no longer working or problems with running Windows itself.

HijackThis is an enumerator and similar in some respects to a registry editor program which displays areas of the Windows registry where the majority of Viruses, Trojans, Spyware, Adware, and Malware reside. HJT will scan certain areas of your system and then create a log to help diagnose the presence of undetected malware in these known hiding places. It then relies on experts to interpret the log entries and determine what needs to be fixed. If you do not have advanced knowledge about computers you should NOT fix anything using HijackThis without consulting a expert as to what to fix.
