:thumbsup: to BleepingComputer emma_wonders.

I think I can tell you how to create a Hijack This folder on your hard drive. I am assuming you are using Windows XP OK? Because of where you chose to post. Open my computer/click local disk/ on an empty place there right click and choose new, then folder and click. Name it Hijack This.

Thank you so much Pandy!!! I'll do that whenever I get home..I'm on my work computer now. And yes, its Windows XP on my laptop.
this is really nerdy but i can't wait to do this and get to the bottom of my computer's idiosyncracies, its less than a year old, and i believe i bought more than enough memory etc to complete all my tasks in a speedy multitasking manner, so i've been cussing a lot b/c i didn't know what was holding my computer up! just didn't realize it....
thanks
emma

I can tell you an easier way to do it. Right-click anywhere on the desktop (except an icon or taskbar). Select new->folder, and call it anything you want.
We are all curious like a cat. We wonder, we ask, we learn.
Please post back when a suggestion works, so that others may learn.

Using the Send To: folder to help you

I got to thinking about the HJT on the desktop. It sorta belongs in a better location. Like anything downloaded to the desktop, it really belongs somewhere else. Default options for moving folders/files off the desktop are limited, though. Thats why HJT ends up in My Documents a lot. Which is OK, I guess, it'll work. It's not a document, though. It's an application, a utility or a program that you don't treat in the same way as a document. So I retrieved the link above bacause it's been so useful for me. Being able to send "anything" "anywhere" from my right-click options. :thumbsup: I'm still pleased as punch that HuckerJ turned me on to that trick. A very good tip, indeed.
