I am having one difficult time attempting to correct a runtime error that is connected to my yahoo messenger program. I searched and found where midnight tech was helped on here and it solved his problems. I followed the same directions and it did not work for me. I ran the Spy-bot and the Adware thingy and then attempted to download the Hijackthis program and it downloaded but would not run. Am I doing something wrong? Am I missing something to help it run. I would appreciate any help someone could give me. I'm not real computer savy and know just enough to be dangerous. Well thank you in advance.
Welcome janicelyn! Try going to http://www.housecall.antivirus.com and do the online virus scan as well as the trojan scan. It took all 3 of those (AASE, Spybot, and Trend's Trojan scanner) as well as their antivirus AND AVG to find everything that was on that machine.
I went to the site and downloaded it I think..... but when I go to the place and double click on it an message window pops up telling me that the Program.exe cannot be found...... I dont think I'm doing it right.... I'm so ready to just sit and cry.
Then remove all toolbars (yahoo, google, etc...) and any applications that say search.
If Internet Explorer is also listed there, click it's remove button, a dialogue box will come up asking if you want to remove or repair-select repair and okay, this makes IE check/reinstall it's files.
This is a popular alternative messenger that works with yahoo, AIM, ICQ, MSN, all in one package. Trillian Messenger
