I have just downloaded Trend Micro's Hijack This program. Before I run a scan, I choose "Do a system scan and save a logfile". The problem I'm having is actually finding the saved logfile, if there is one. After the scan completes, Notepad opens and a dialog box pops up and says "Cannot find the C:\ProgramFiles\TrendMicro\HijackThis\hijackthis.log file. Do you want to create a new file?" I proceed to click Yes, at which point Notepad remains open but blank.

I have several items being identified as possible threats to the computer but I wouldn't have a clue as to which ones actually need to be removed. Can anyone help me to create a list of the possible infections and then let me know how to upload it to the site for help?
