At least that was my case. check my blog Never use software from sources you don't trust. If the software collects personal information without the user's permission (a list of websites visited, for example, or a log of keystrokes), it may become spyware. guess i did something wrong 0 Kudos Posted by jw50 ‎12-31-2004 06:13 PM Most Valued Poster View All Member Since: ‎12-29-2003 Posts: 1,674 Message 3 of 4 (331 Views) Re: hijackthis
