may computer may have a virus (win32:malob-bx [cryp]), but avast is blocking it. however, everytime i boot, i get a warning that avast has blocked its installation.

anyway, i'm trying to run hijackthis, so i can ask you guys what to do next, but my version won't create a log. it says that if im using vista, i should right click the icon and select run as administrator; however, i couldn't change it into this setting.

what are my other options?
