a problem and cannot be viewed. i have tried everything and even reinstalled
IExplorer to see if it helped and it did not. Can someone please tell me
what's going on here??

If yes, then follow Steps 1 - 11 to run FixWareout.exe
Please post the 'report.txt' as described in Step 11 so that we can see
if the system was infected or still is.
