Hijack This

I tried playing a game with a friend on MSN Messenger and I had to download ActiveX and Flash but the game wouldn't work, I was browing in HJT and game to a line with a missing file something called a protocol, is it okay to delete it since the file is missing? HJT log included.

this file belongs to the messenger.
You may want to reinstall it.

Re: Hijack This

Reinstall messenger? Does it have anything to do with me trying to play a game on it? Like trying to d/l activex and flash?

Hi Erin,

try this to download ActiveX and Flash

www.macromedia.com/shockwave/ download/activex/flash/ieWin32400.htm

activex.moonvalley.com/download_activex_controls.htm

and also install the DirectX 9.0 to play the latest game.

DirectX:
www.softwarepatch.com/windows/directx.html

Erin,

I can not confirm that. But since that file is part of the messenger I would try to get it back by reinstalling.

Re: Hijack This

Thanks jasdev.

You're right, not that I have had any problems with messenger except for some reason I had problems trying to add a contact but I didn't know whether it was just messenger or maybe because that file thing is messed up.
