This is my first use of this site or the program HijackThis so please excuse any ignoralce of the protocals.

Any help would be appreciated. Why do people do things like this? I am not naive by a long shot, but this type of malevolence seems hard ot comprehand.

Hi, and thanks so much for responding. I had done just that (dumb luck) early this morning, and then did a Windows repair. All is well now, and he is back to normal.

I really do appreciate the effort you guys put in here to help others with these types of problems. I really hope that the legislation that is in the works is passed so as to make the people who do this type of thing a bit more cognizant of the risk to their own financial situation if they continue.

Thanks again.
