It's a little bit of everything going on. Remember? I said i kept hearing my firewall pop on and off? Well I didn't switch and now i guess I am gonna pay for it. My shutdown freezes cold. I can't burn a movie or a cd. I says it's done as soon as it starts and ruins my disc. ummmmmm The "safely remove hardware" icon is in my taskbar. I have nothing plugged in or in the drives. On startup as soon as that little icon pops up, a few weird lines pop through my screen for about a half of a second. Somethin's up.

I guess i will start googling my processes, maybe that will turn up something.

And here's my log. Tarun said it was good though. Just 1 entry I removed that didn't help.

Ok I have spent a lot of time reading up on this now, without actually learning much except for the fact that everyone who seems to have that IadHide5.dll in that folder does not have anything bad showing up with all the malware scanners.

Considering that it is in a temp folder then I would suggest doing the following:

Go to C:\Documents and Settings\HP_Administrator\Local Settings\Temp, and select everything in that folder and delete it (but do not delete the temp folder itself).

If this does not work in normal mode then try again in safe mode.

It is okay. I needed a back up of all my data anyway. I am using Nero BackItUp to back up my data. I am going to restore since it is new and I don't have much on here. Nero is really easy to use, if you use double layer dvd's. I have all the junk on here from my linksys set up that I don't need anymore. So I am gonna start over.

Edit: I did delete that file manually in safe mode and it came back.
