HijackThis is a program that can be used to quickly spot home page hijackers and startup programs that you do not want to start automatically. This program is a not anti-virus program, but rather a enumerator that lists programs that are starting up automatically on your computer as well as other configuration information that is commonly hijacked. Since there is no filter on what it reports, you should research each entry before you remove anything using this tool. For detailed information on how to use this program, please see the link to the HijackThis Tutorial below.
Note: Though HijackThis works on Windows Vista, 7, and 8, it is unable to properly generate the report for the various types of entries. Therefore, we typically recommend HijackThis for Windows XP only.
Note: You should only use HijackThis if you have advanced computer knowledge or if you are under the direction of someone who does. Improper usage of this pr ogram can cause problems with how your computer operates.
To use HijackThis, download the file and extract it to a directory on your hard drive called C:\HijackThis. Then navigate to that directory and double-click on the hijackthis.exe file. When the program is started click on the Scan button and then the Save Log button to create a log of your information.
