re: Slocat - ADw Cleaner report
This worked great John but sure having a problem figuring out how to use this reply to send you the reports you wanted :) I'll make one more try. Thanks so much. I've already sent this several times so hoping this is successful. I've sent the Adw log but not the JRT log which is below.

"but sure having a problem figuring out how to use this reply to send you the reports you wanted"
Why you couldn't post it slocat, is due to the size, it needed to be broken up into parts or uploaded to site as a text file in one piece.
Anyways, the Screen Capture gave me the info I needed. Here is what users have been doing.

As you can see, you had a lot of stuff installed, that you did not know had been installed.
A lot of programs, now give you the choice to install toolbars & other during the install. Either uncheck these items during install, or use Custom install. No more click, click during an install, you have to read after each click.

Just to check further & make sure nothing is lurking.

1: Download & run Unhide
To run Unhide, simply download it to your desktop and then double-click on the Unhide icon. The program will open a black box and start making the files on your fixed disks visible again. Please note, that this program will not unhide removable drives like flash cards and usb drives as the FakeHDD rogues do not target these types of drives. Once it has finished, the program will display a Windows alert stating that your files have been restored. You should then reboot your computer for all of the settings to go into effect.
Copy & Paste the contents of the log. Let me know if it doesn't produce a log please.

2: Reboot

3: Run RogueKiller
