I see on security check that I still don't have SP2. It also is not on my list of available updates. Do you think you could walk me through it?

OK. Windows Vista SP2 installed. Seems to be running stable. I just got home from work and haven't tried anything, but I have been told that all is good.

Just downloaded two programs, no problems.

Java update and Adobe update.

Very good. So glad we got it sorted.

I am looking in to this file called syshook.dll. Mysterious.

I'm glad too. Next thing I have to do is figure out what the heck we did to fix it, and what all the logs told you.

Thanks for all your help.

That suspicious trojan, a suspicious driver, and an incomplete install of AVG and McAfee -- all were probably a culprit.

Maybe I'll have to sign up for your school so I can learn how to help others.
