any idea what i should look for in the report? i'm trying to find a way to print it, scan it, and then upload the scan to the other comp, but no luck so far.
The bug might have hosed Symantec. You may have to reinstall it.

It's not really worth it to try and tell you what to look for in your HijackThis log. There's too many possibilities to begin. We'll have to look at it and see what doesn't belong, as opposed to telling you what could be there. But I don't think you have anything to worry about by hooking it back up to the internet. The "Your private data is at risk" statement is slightly over dramatized. A HijackThis log only collects system and application data. It doesn't really do anything else. It will show every program that's running on your computer at that moment. That's about as personal as the information gets. There's zero harm in doing so, unless you just don't want people to know what apps you're running.
