Hi Guys and Gals
Any ideas on this one ??
Good mate brought over his PC. Usual story,Nortons had expired and he hadn't bothered to renew. Running like a crippled dog and after much scanning and deleting , managed to get the machine cleaned out after wiping out heaps of viruses adware etc.
The strange thing now is, the PC dials up OK, you can cruise around the net OK, Google to your hearts content, but when send/receiving in OLExpress, as
soon as the bar comes up showing that you are downloading a message, the PC reboots.
The PC is running ME and OL Express 6.
Any suggestions greatfully accepted.
Cheers
HH

Get him/her to download Hijackthis (http://www.merijn.org/files/hijackthis.zip)

Unzip it first then, put it in its own folder, and run it. Then scan and then copy and paste the log here.

That app seems to have fixed the problem.
Will add that to the arsenal for future use.

Did u unzip it into its own folder, run it, scan, and delete the nasty entries if there were any?
