Why do you say that? Sure I would have felt better if I had solved the problem of IE but the time I have put in in the past few days was really getting to me! So I will ! For now avoid the problem and tackle it later with a fresh mind!


I am sure you know that I wasnt about to get anything accomplished with sending error reports to Microsoft!!!!

From your HijackThis! log, I see something that might be causing the problem.

You appear to be using the H: drive (or partition) to boot Windows. It appears everything is off the H: drive. But for some reason, Internet Explorer and Outlook Express appear to be running from drive C: ...that may have something to do with the problem.

C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msimn.exe
C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe
Try locking the partition (so your computer can't use it) and running IE from H:/Program Files/Internet Explorer...

On the other hand, Firefox is a far superior browser to Internet Explorer, so enjoy.

First off thanks for the reply!

Second how do I lock the partition?
and third I totally agree that Firefox is superior and I have only used it for a little more than a day!

i think he means "hide" the partition. Most partitioning software has this option. Partition Magic is ok.
