I would like to know more about your system before you do anything. please download HijackThis from the below link and follow my directions before you proceed to "B"


Once installed, open HijackThis by clicking Start > Program Files > HijackThis and click the button labeled "Do a system scan only".

Note: Once the scan is complete, the scan button will read "Save log". You may save the log file to your PC. Once you select where you would like to save the file, it will open in your system's default text editor. Typically this application is Notepad.
