I think a sledge hammer might be better, then those icons can't get to any other computers - remember to burn it just in case.

Should this be moved to the Public Library (sic) or the Open for sharing room - not quite right in this room.

Hmmmm. Interesting. I managed to clear the infection afterwards using a little icon in the top right-hand side of the browser window marked with a little 'x'.

This also seemed to remove the HijackThis entries, that no longer appear in my log.

Unless it works by installing some method yet unheard of to HJT :roll:

Why does anyone need to reformat and burn their PC?
