hello, just trying to understand my computer more. I run sygate personal firewall and it shows 4 msmsgs.exe files (they are marked don't allow), and an alg.exe file. I checked on the alg.exe file and read that it shouldn't load if I don't have double firewalls, and I checked, I am not using the Windows internet firewall, so it seems alg.exe has a problem. Also, the msmsgs.exe, it keeps coming up...and I'm not asking it to...I figure that, too, is a problem.

I have read the FAQ. I updated all of my protection devices (Norton Antivirus, Sygate, Spybot, Ad-Aware) and then scanned with Norton, Spybot, and Ad-Aware. I then scanned with hijackThis. I am unsure what a host file is, and thought it better if someone steers me in the right direction before I use the hijackthis log to change anything. It is listed below.

Thank you in advance, kentucki

I did everything Ad-Aware told me to do; I did the Spy-bot thing, I downloaded hijackthis and did it, and set the information on here. That was a week ago. Now my computer is starting in safe mode all the time and I key in to start in normal mode, hit restart, the computer starts again....in safe mode!

I have no idea what I have done, and I have no idea what to do now. Could someone please help me? I think I've royally screwed my system up.
