2 problems currently.

1. Trying to use the Activate Generate StartupList Log feature in Hijack This. When I click the button I end up with an Untitled Notepad window and a smaller notepad window with the following message; cannot find the C:\Program Files (x86)\Trend Micro\Hijack This\startuplist.txt file It also ask if I wish to create a new file. I chose yes and nothing happened. Additionally, I currently use Spybot and Malwarebytes. Any suggestions?

2. Upon performing my basic scan per the tutorial, I receive a message (new window) with words; System Denied Access to the Hosts file.

EDIT: Needed to log on as administrator. All is well.

It appears that this issue is resolved, therefore I am closing the topic. If that is not the case and you need or wish to continue with this topic, please send me or any Moderator a Personal Message (PM) that you would like this topic re-opened.

regards, Elise
