Here is my hijackthis log. Any help is greatly appreciated!!
My computer shut down upon replying to an email. My internet homepage will not stay the same. On 8/6/04 I noticed lots of files had downloaded and my virtual memory was low. I installed spybot and ad-aware. It found 1944 files. Sorry I deleted those. It worked mcuh better for about 12 to 15 hours and is currently changing my home page again. I am unable to surf without getting hijacked. I unchecked some of the items on start-up. When I run spybot and ad-aware it finds 6 to 8 files now. It has locked-up some today while trying to search different web sites. I'm wondering if my computer needs formatting? I'm hoping you can help!!! THANKS!

TomCoyotes contains the anti-malware school - Classroom. SpyWareInfo contains the anti-malware school - BootCamp. Net-Intergration is the support site of Spybot S&D. Lavasoft Support is the support site of Ad-aware. Wilders Security has since stopped hijackthis log support due to the lack of experianced helpers. Others that I would recommend Zerosrealm, Subratam.org, SpyWare BeWare and ComputerCops, but generally all those on that list will have experts to help you. Texruss and myself are Teachers at The TomCoyote Forum.
There are still some knowledgable people left posting here at Dell, so you may still get help from them.
I wish you all the best at getting your computer clean.
