Since you aren't requesting assistance for malware removal, I am shifting this topic to the AV forum.

Sorry if i did not explain it a bit better.
Basically is it ok to use the process manager in "hijack this" or would it be best to use another process manager
if thats a better way of putting it.
"process manager" probably would have more tools to work with, but i think for me "hijack this" process manager should be ok for me.

If i have any questions about the "scan listings" should i just use this forum...

If you have a question about any process you can post it in the Vista forum
That would be fine

The process manager in HijackThis is ok to use but it is basic. If you want to do investigative work there are better alternatives which will provide much more information.These tools will provide information about each process, CPU usage, file description and its path location.

Anytime you come across a suspicious file or one that you do not recognize, search the name using Google <- click here for an example.

Or search the following databases:If you cannot find any information, the file has a legitimate name but is not located where it is supposed to be, or you want a second opinion, submit it to Jotti's virusscan or VirusTotal. In the "File to upload & scan" box, browse to the location of the suspicious file and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis.
