:thumbsup:
Im running Windows 98, I had everything up and running pretty good with the help of "Robear" but now it seems like something else happened. I tried a quick scan on-line which came up with 1239 problems with my computer. I noticed that alot of the items (programs, downloads etc.) scanned I had already removed via "add/remove programs". When I went into explorer they were still there, so I deleted them. I tried to run a "hijackthis log" now and everytime a click on the desktop icon it just says "error occured". I tried to redownload it, but its not working. Any sugguestings?

Sounds like a Vundo infection. Right click on hijackthis.exe and rename it to something like findhidden.exe and then run it. Post the new HijackThis log at the correct section of these forums.

Ok, I renamed "Hijackthis" to "findhidden.exe" like you suggested, when I went to open it it gave me the "unexpected error" message again.

Hi

Try this link: Merijn's site - HJT dll fix.

I hope this helps,

The file downloads fine. It uses Winzip to open. I tried it again through winzip and when I clicked on the icon it said "unexpected error". It just doesnt want to open it. Can I open it with something else? I just started getting familiar with "Hijackthis" and what to look for and now that my computer is going crazy I dont know where else to look. Is there a way that I can restore my last system backup? Not the registry the actual system backup. Do you think this would help?

Is it having trouble extracting the HJT program - it won't unzip it? Try uninstalling and reinstalling Winzip. Or, is it having trouble running HJT. Then please give us a full error message.

Thanks,
rigel
