          One problem with this though...When I was running the scan, it said it couldn't access the HOST.  What is this?  Is it a problem?

          Hey, evil.
          I just wanted to make sure, the computer is clean, and I don't see anything here, so you may want to lock this thread.

            You have to right click HJT and Run as Administrator with Vista or it won't work right.
