I've been through all of the steps listed in your sticky post, but when I tried to run Hijack this, I get an error that Hijack This can't produce an output file.

I had the same problem as another user - SpyDawn and Video Access Active X were downloaded to my computer. The Search & Destroy found both and said that it got rid of them, but they're still showing up, and I'm still getting the System Alert popup. The Windows Explorer was looping, as described by another user, but that has stopped now.

Please advise.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

I will update you when completed.

Thanks again. This site has really been a mental health saver on more than one occasion.

Okay, I'm at work right now, so I don't have the computer in front of me, but my husband tried downloading and using SmitFraud, but he says it seems to not be compatible with Windows Vista. Of course, when he rebooted into the Safe Mode, the Windows Explorer loop started up again.

Is he possibly missing a step in the sestup of SmitFraud, or is the version linked to on that page not compatible?

Thanks again.

hello tambralyn,

Click here to download HJTsetup.exe

Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.
Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

Regards,

Rosty.
