Yes some malware can hide certain entries in a log while other types may keep the program from running altogether so renaming sometimes helps. Open the HijackThis Folder, find the HijackThis.exe file, right click on the file and select rename
. Type Analyze.exe
and hit "Enter". Double-click
on Analyze.exe (which is still hijackthis) to run the program. If needed change
to something else such as .bat
, or .scr
. Example: Analyze.bat
If that still does not help, try this:
Download DelDomains.infalternate download
1. Save it to your desktop.
2. Right-click DelDomains.inf
and select: Install
(no need to restart).
3. You may not see any noticeable changes or prompts - this is normal. Note: The DelDomains.inf file will remove ALL entries in the Trusted, Restricted, and Enhanced Security Configuration Zones. Any entries that you had will need to be entered again. You will have to reimmunize with SpywareBlaster, and/or Spybot after doing this, and reinstall IESpyads if you use any of these programs.
Then try scanning again with HJT.
