I would post a HijackThis log when I first join, just to make sure my computer is infection free.
When you post it, indicate that that it's just for a check-up.
After that, you shouldn't post again unless you have, or suspect, a problem.
The HJT Team are very busy, trying to keep up with the amount of logs they receive, everyday.
Posting a log, monthly, just for a check-up, isn't a very good idea.
As you indicated, it could delay someone, who does have a problem, from getting the help they need, in a timely manner.
So, by all means, post that first log, to be sure your computer is clean.
Then if you follow the steps outlined in our numerous Tutorials
, you shouldn't have to post another HJT log, for a long time.
