Several things seem comprimised, or is it? Looking at the sheer number of Unknown Owners and Missing Files...what could be going on here? Is this at all, "normal"? *EDIT_NEVERMIND, I found my answer in the Official HJT forums, and present it here for all future Windows 7 64-bit users for future reference:

Re: HJT Unknown owner - missing file in logOptions

Hi there!

HiJackThis version up until 2.0.3 (beta) are geared towards most consumer installations on 32-bit and systems from Windows XP and prior.We've tested it to run without crashing on even the latest Windows 7, however the outputs would not be as meaningful (ex. Unknown Owner) given that registry entries beyond Windows XP have slight differences in the calling code. The next version of HiJackThis (v2.0.5) is in the works and we're looking to get all the needed updates including 64-bit functionality in place towards Q1 2010. Stay tuned :-)


Thank you HJT. icon_thumb.gif
