Before you post a HijackThis log in this forum for analysis, please be sure you have done the following things:

Download and run a spyware detection and removal program like Spybot Search & Destroy or Ad-Aware. Also, make sure that after you install and before you run a scan with these programs, you download the appropriate updates for the programs first.
Update your antivirus software and run a full scan of your system. If you do not have an antivirus program, use one of the free online scanners listed here or download and update a copy of AVG Free Edition to scan with.

When you post your log, please be sure you include all the following information in your post also, in order to help us give you the best answer:

Which spyware program you scanned with
Whether you downloaded the latest spyware definition updates before running your scan
What problems it found and/or removed, if any (names of the spyware problems you had/have)
Which antivirus program you scanned with
Whether you got the latest virus definition updates before you scanned
What viruses it found and/or removed, if any (names of any viruses you had/have on your system)
What operating system you are using (Windows 95, 98, Me, 2000, XP, etc.)
What problems your system is still displaying

Analyzing HijackThis logs can sometimes take a lot of time to research, and often those first two things alone (spyware detection and antivirus software) will take care of 90% of the problems. We're happy to analyze logs when needed, but we want to make sure we use our time so it can be the most valuable to the most members, so we really appreciate your doing these things before you post HJT logs.
