hi anyone,
im pretty new to this site (& computing) so as way of an introduction & query this is my post;
i bought my first computer last february & countless problems later (caused or contributed by my own ignorance or the advice & servicing of my 'expert' friends)
first i had kasparsky anti software installed, my friend had advised me that i didnt need to buy any software at all as any of it was free 'if you know where to look'.
an almighty crash later where i lost everything (nothing tangibly important exept, ironically, the eBook 'firewalls for dummies' & 8 months worth of photos of my 1 year old boy).
so ive just spent 50 on norton systemWorks 2005 & installed it. it didnt come with a firewall so ive just installed sygate personell firewall & it has asked me if i want to allow the following applications access to the net:
1 - NT Kernel & System
2 - Application Layer Gateway Service
3 - LSA Shell(Export version)
4 - Generic Host Process for Win32 Services
5 - NDIS User mode I/O Driver
i also get the following message from sygate firewall -
Windows Explorer(explorer.exe) is trying to connect to treestompertime.net ( using remote port 80 (HTTP - World Wide Web). Do you want to allow this program to access the network?"
(odd that it has only quotation marks at the end)
ive checked out the web site but get an odd message.
anyway thanks for your patience that youve made this far & more thanks in advance if any of this makes any sense & can be clarified

Create a directory on your hardrive to save HijackThis.exe. A directory like c:\hijackthis. If you do not do this, you will not be able to use the backup/restore features.

Download HijackThis from:

HijackThis Download Site

Save this file into the directory you made previously and then run the program named hijackthis.exe. When the program opens click on the Config button, then click on the Misc Tools button, and click on the Check for update online button. When it completes checking/applying updates press the back button.

Now click on the Scan button and when it is finished click on the Save Log button. A Notepad window will open with the contents of this log. Click on Edit then click on Select all. Then click on Edit and then Click on Copy.

Create a reply to this post here and right click in message area and select paste to paste the log into the post.

Someone will reply to you after reading this post. DO NOT fix any entries unless you understand what you are doing.
