Answer

This question was answered on December 2, 2004. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

Download Hijack This - put it in its own folder somewhere you can find it (ie the desktop) Run Hijack This Hit 'Scan' The Scan button will change to Savelog Hit that and save the logfile to a txt document Then copy / paste the contents of the log in another reply in this same thread.

Once done - hit the Reoprt button (next to the post #) and request that this whole thread be moved to the Security Forum where someone who has a good grasp of Hijack This files can take a look and see what / if anything needs to be removed.

But do not delete anything yourself at this time.
