Recently got this spyware threats detected. Ultimate defender ad. I don't want to buy that. I have already run AVG FREE scan, CCleaner, Spybot Search & Destroy and now Stinger is running a scan. Hopefully I will be able to extract the hijackthis setup file to run it next. I did not have it installed prior to. Whenever I try to install it, the window automatically closes so I can not continue. Also, google search for hijackthis would cause the explorer window to close. Any suggestions?

Go to the Hijack This file you downloaded. Right click on it and change the name to "Lasthopescan". Now see if it will install.

Rogue Remover may get rid of this for you.
