Hi, Running XP pro and HJT V2.0.4
When doing a scan I get from time to time-: Error #5 Invalid procedure call or argument.

I can do one or two things to rectify this, I can use System restore or a complete re-install of HJT ensuring that I delete ALL it's files.

Has anyone come across this and what is the cure if any?

Thank you, Dave.

Hi Pentodes,

Since being purchased by Trend Micro several years back, HiJackThis has not been maintained to keep up with current malware. I doubt that you will find any information on the Trend website. There are better tools used by Malware Forum Helpers these days.

IMO, I wouldn't bother running HJT or worrying about the errors.

If you think you might be infected, post in the Am I Infected Forum?

Good info by Artrooks...this website has not used HJT as a malware tool for quite some time now.

I will move your topic to the Am I Infected forum.

Ah righto thanks.... no, no I'm not infected, thanks. As said it was an error on scanning and nothing more!

Funny, Avira still ask folks to run HJT, I didn't know it had folded. I've stopped using Avira a while ago, it's got itself in a pretty poor state.

Thanks again, regards Dave!
