HijackThis ...

Sponsored Link

 Features ...

  • HijackThis lists the contents of key areas of the Registry and hard drive ... areas that are used by both legitimate programmers and hijackers. The program is continually updated to detect and remove new hijacks.
  • It does not target specific programs and URLs, only the methods used by hijackers to force you onto their sites.
  • As a result, false positives are imminent, and unless you're sure about what you're doing, you always should consult with knowledgeable folks in the Forums (below) before deleting anything.
Note well: Hijack This is for advanced users. If you are not familiar with running processes on your computer as well as anything ever installed that could tie into your web browser, it will not be much help to you. That's ok, there are Forums available to help you!

You should have scanned your machine with anti-spyware, anti-virus and trojan tools before using HijackThis. When you have created your logfile of running processes, you can visit the Forums to post your log file which can help the Forum helpers analyze your log file and explain how to post it so they can help to analyze it for you.

HijackThis is a general homepage hijackers detector and remover. Initially based on the article Hijacked!, but expanded with almost a dozen other checks against hijacker tricks. It is continually updated to detect and remove new hijacks. It does not target specific programs/URLs, just the methods used by hijackers to force you onto their sites.
