There is a HijackThis Tutorial that will give you an idea how to use HijackThis.

There are currently no programs available. Please check back in a few days.

and i'm a bit impatient when it comes to waiting a few days, but i will check it out again soon

You should never attempt to fix anything using HijackThis, until someone who is experienced at reading the log outputs, has a chance to review it.
Fixing the wrong items can make your computer unbootable.

Spaces, extra characters, spelling, file location, plus numerous other subtle changes, all make the difference between a "good", or "bad", file entry.

Removing entries in HJT before the problem is properly identified, and correct removal instructions posted, can make the problem undetectable to other detection and removal tools.
HijackThis should only be used to clean up the entries left behind, after you have properly removed the offending program, file, trojan, worm, hijacker, etc.
And this usually requires help.

Currently the BC is not accepting any new HJT Tech Trainees.

Sorry, the Staff is totally involved with the current applicants.

Keep your eyes open though for when we can accept new applicants.
