Hi DKCoole,

I think that you might have checked every single item in HijackThis!

(Based on this post: http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/forums/index ... &forumid=1)

Lets get those items back. To do this:

  1. Open HijackThis, and click on "View The List Of Backups".
  2. Check every single item and click the "Restore" button.
  3. Hit "Yes" when it asks you if you want to restore these items.

Run a scan with HijackThis, and post me an updated log.
