Hello Trishy, I'd like to know what version of the program you downloaded? Also have you tried restarting your computer, then opening hijackthis?

I'm not sure, but I think HijackThis needs to be run with Administrator priveledges, make sure you're logged on as Administrator.

Welcome to BC trish1956.. PLease try this

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 the .exe to something else such as .bat, .com, .pif, or .scr. Example: Analyze.bat or Analyze.com
