I'm doing everything I need to do to post my HJT log and I'm on the last step but I had to update my version of HJT. I uninstalled all prior versions of HJT and downloaded the new version but can't get it to unzip. Out of desperation I downloaded 3 different unzip programs with no success. I've rebooted and tried everything several times and still nothing. What am I doing wrong?

I remember the last time I updated my HJT the same thing happened. A couple days later it had mysteriously unzipped on it's own and I was able to use the program just fine. What in the heck?

What is the version that you are trying to unzip? To the best of my knowledge, the latest is still 1.99.1, the new beta version (2.0) by Trend Micro is not being used yet. Here is a link to the lilnk here on bleeping computer.

Weird-- I had no problems unzipping using the XP decompressor.I would recommend running the system file checker. sfc /scannow in the run line or from a cmd.exe window. here is a link to the self extracting file:

this also worked perfectly for me.

Alternatively when unzipping try save as Analyze.exe or any other name.
