This is a strange one. The pc uses xp sp2 with the latest hijackthis. When doing a hijackthis scan, at or near the end of the scan the pc crashes. Has anyone encountered this one? Other then the crash the pc seems to function ok during regular operations. :thumbsup: :flowers: :trumpet:

By "latest version" of HijackThis, I assume you mean 1.99.1?

There's a Ms4Hd parasite that interferes with the operation of HJT. If that's what's causing it, download the older version, 1.98.2 from Merijn's site. and try it. It fails when it gets to the 023's, which would be near the end of the scan.

I dont think it matters of what version hes using.

I believe hes got spyware that recognizes hijack this and shuts down his pc to avoid removal of itself.

There are a few applications from merijn.org that help detect known worms/malware that shut down hijack this while scanning.

If you know your normal running processes, and nothing seems weird try reinstalling hjt

OK you may have more luck in the hijack this forum with this one

They will probably ask you to download the process manager part of hijack this and then post a log file of all the running processes you can find that here http://www.merijn.org/ (itty bitty process manager) about half way down the page.

Once it has been worked out with process is causing the problem you can then stop those and then run hijack this and get a logfile
