wrong topic, please repost in appropriate section. Thanx

Hi jpc43,

I suggest you:

Create a directory on your hardrive to save HijackThis.exe. A directory like c:\hijackthis. If you do not do this, you will not be able to use the backup/restore features.

Download HijackThis from:

HijackThis Download Site

Save this file into the directory you made previously and then run the program named hijackthis.exe. When the program opens click on the Config button, then click on the Misc Tools button, and click on the Check for update online button. When it completes checking/applying updates press the back button.

Now click on the Scan button and when it is finished click on the Save Log
button. A Notepad window will open with the contents of this log. Click on Edit then click on Select all. Then click on Edit and then Click on Copy.

Create a reply to this post here (HijackThis Logs and Analysis)
and right click in message area and select paste to paste the log into the post.

Someone will reply to you after reading this post. DO NOT fix any entries unless you understand what you are doing.

I hope this helps...

Thanks a bunch man...i was mostly just wondering as a general topic here..like to discuss other spyware programs,or possible ways to find it on your computer

i did already post a hijack this log a couple days ago i think..no reply yet, but i am a patient person haha

i didn't realize i had to save it directly under my main drive..why does this and only this allow a restore point?

HijackThis Tutorial.

Hi jpc43. Have you had a chance to read the tutorial for HijackThis? To answer your question tho HijackThis needs to be in it's own folder because....

Create a folder where you would like the HijackThis file to reside. It is important that you download this file to its own folder as this folder will be used when HijackThis makes backups. If you run it out of a compressed file, like a zip file, instead of running it from a directory, the backups will not be made.

I hope this answers your question. :thumbsup:

Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.
