HJT Scan

Post by Guest » Mon Sep 29, 2008 2:46 pm

If you think you have malware, you should run a HijackThis log and post it on one of the forums I've listed below.

To download HijackThis go to the following link:
http://www.trendsecure.com/portal/en-US ... ijackthis/

1. Click on the "Download" button at the top of the page, then click on the "Download HijackThis Installer" link that will appear . . . it's the very first one.

2. Save HJTInstall.exe to your desktop.

3. Doubleclick on the HJTInstall.exe icon on your desktop. You may get the "open file - security warning" window asking you if you want to run the file. If so, just click "Run".

4. Click "Install". By default it will install HJT to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis and create a HJT icon on your desktop and launch HJT.

5. Click on the "Do a system scan and save a log file" button. It will scan and then save the log to Notepad.

6. Close HJT by clicking on the "X".

7. At the top of the Notepad HJT log screen, hit Edit then Select All then click Edit and then click Copy (doing that copies the text to the clipboard, you won't see it yet....)

8. Go to any of the the Malware Removal forums listed below and Paste the log in a new thread. (To paste - if you use IE as your browser - just click on the "Edit" menu selection, and then "Paste" in the drop down menu)

DO NOT have HijackThis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required. WAIT until a security expert AT ONE OF THE SITES LISTED BELOW looks at your log and interprets it and posts a reply.

I agree with BobJam, this is how I answered on the last poll
How often do you run a virus scan on your computer?
I answered :I have it automatically scheduled so I don't think about it. But, when I was starting on my very first computer, I encrypted all the files, and installed Kaspersky, on my next computer BitDefender, and now I am using Avira Anti-virus. Those are a phew very good Anti-Viruses, and you all could use them. If you don`t want to spend money on Anti-viruses, there is always a free version. And of course, you need to have Internet security with you Anti-virus too, if you don`t you can download it from the Internet. You need to have some programs that are refreshing your computer like Glary Utilities, or TuneUp Utilities 2008. And remember: If you want to have a computer, the first thing is SECURITY!
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Surf Safe.
