Okay, I'm posting about a few concerns here, and I'd -really- appreciate any help I can get.

I also posted this in another forum, as I figure two heads are always better than one, and I can see what I get for suggestions on both sides.

Concern number two and three are my main priorities at the moment.


*****Concern number one***** (NOTE: apparently resolved on other forum... on Vista, Hosts files are blocked from access? )
When running Hijackthis, I get this error:
http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j2...ko/hostss1.png

When I press okay, I then get this message:
http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j2...ko/hostss2.png



Why is this, and how can I fix this?


Here's the HJT log I get, anyways. Not sure if it has everything scanned because of the above errors:

*****Concern number two***** (On other forum, someone said that it looks like an SDbot is on one of my screenshots below??)
Last year, I downloaded a few parental control programs. One's called SystemGate, the other is called Aye Parental Control.
I found that I didn't need parental controls on this computer or something, so I removed them from Add/Remove programs.

The thing is, today, I checked my startup programs list. I found a few things on startup that involve those programs:
http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j2...sysgatess2.png (System Gate)
http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j2...eko/apcss2.png (Most likely from Aye Parental Control... see the A1_P2_C3 thing?)


I went to find those file locations in C:\Windows, but they don't show up. So I went into my control panel preferences, and enabled showing of hidden files... still nothing. How do I remove these programs then, or is it possible that they were already removed, and that they just happen to still be showing up on my startup list?

I really don't feel comfortable not being able to remove those.


I've run Trend Micro and Spysweeper, and they don't find anything. I used to have AVG and Ad-aware from last year to the beginning of this year, and they never found anything. Dunno if that helps.

*****Concern number three*****(didn't get much help on this, I was just told that since I used safe mode without networking, updates won't download, but I don't think that's it...)

I just logged into safe mode to run some antivirus/spyware scans (With Trend Micro and Spysweeper). I've never done it before, but I heard it's a good thing to do scans ocassionally in safe mode.

The thing is, a balloon popped up at the bottom saying that Windows Security Center (firewall, automatic updates, etc.) was turned off. So I went to turn it back on, and it wouldn't allow me to. So I restarted the computer and went back into normal mode, and the security center
was working fine.

Does anyone know why it wasn't running in safe mode, and why it couldn't be turned on? Is that normal? Also, is it safe to go into safe mode if the security center isn't working?
