First, I must warn that I am a bit ignorant when it comes to computers, so PLEASE be aware. :) I have read your FAQ and attempted to perform all recommendations; however, my husband's PC has more problems than I can name. Here are the major issues (I'll attempt to use proper terminology:

1) Homepage HiJacked to about:blank
2) Pop-Up's galore, even when AdAware and SpyBot are running
3) He get's 2 or 3 error messages with start-up
4) He previously downloaded HiJack This, however I can't find it so am attempting to download again from TomCoyote's Forum. This computer freezes.
5) At this point, I have ran AdAware and Spybot multiple times, back-to-back, and continously find 12-36 problems with each time.
6) After rebooting, I enabled everything in 'startup' from msconfig and rebooted again in order to run HiJackThis. I can't get it downloaded...I'm frozen and the hourglass will not go away!

Is there anything I can do to clean this up in order to get this computer to move forward?

Thanks so much.

OK, if this is a stupid question, please forgive me, but...

Since we switched browsers to from Internet Explorer to Mozilla, everything seems to be 100% better. My question is...what about all that stuff reported on the HiJackThis log? Don't we still need to clean-up the computer?

(I tried to warn you about my limited PC knowledge!) :)
