remove everything you do not use or 
anything you do not recognize

put in the cdrom or plug in the thumb drive to your computer, 
next on the computers desktop make a directory 
name it so that you can easily find it 
copy the software to that folder or directory
run the program installers in the same order you downloaded them 

run the programs in the same order you downloaded them 
when you run hijackthis,, save the log file & email it to me 
i can read it and figure out what hit you

= = = = = = AntiVirus Warning = = = = = = 
currently there are no anti-virus programs that 
i would install due to the fact that for all practical purposes 
they all fail to stop viruses AND malware & this is manditory

in the future please use web based virus scanners like
