Right click on the file, choose Open With..., then choose Notepad. This will open the log.

Copy and paste the log into the HiJackThis forum. Not this forum.

Good luck!

I guess we need more info. What file are you speaking of?

Did you download HJT and install it? Then did you run a scan and save it to your desktop? Is this the file you are trying to open, the 'saved scan'?

Right click on the file in question and then click properties. Give us the entire name of the file including the three letters after the period. In other words it could be HiJackThis.zip or HiJackThis.txt or something else.

Please give us more info.

EDIT: I am thinking you may be trying to open/run the original downloaded HJT file. If you have already run this, and installed HJT, and run a scan.... then the program and the saved log can be found at:

Start > My Computer > C: > Program Files > HiJackThis

If you find the program and the log in the above folder, then delete the downloaded file on your desktop so as not to further confuse you. Please tell us if I am wrong.

Well, e2give is spyware. Info can be found HERE. But I am not sure what it has to do with running HiJackThis.

If you downloaded HiJackThis from Bleeping Computer, then you downloaded a file called

HiJackThis_sfx.exe

Is this the file? Instructions on how to use this can be found in THIS tutorial. Scroll down until you see HiJackThis discussed on that page.

If the file is actually called HiJackThis.sfx and/or you got it elsewhere, delete it.

You are not giving us much to go on here. I asked for more of an explanation in my last response, but really got none from you. I don't know if you have run the program yet, or just what is going on. One suggestion is to think that you are describing in detail what is going on with your computer - to a blind person. We, who want to help you, cannot see what is happening and must rely upon your descriptions and explanations, which have been very sparse. Please feel free to elaborate on your responses, k? :thumbsup:

When you donloaded Hijack This, did you install it on the system root drive (usually C:), or did you save it to the desktop?

It needs to be installed and run from the root drive - not the desktop.

Although that's not where I usually install it from, the .sfx file should install from anywhere. You double-click on it, press the "unzip" button, and then the "close" button. Hijackthis! is now in the C:\Program Files\Hijackthis folder. If the double-click doesn't work, then the file is probably corrupted and needs to be re-downloaded. It's self-extracting.
