Smile Everyone Get The New HijackThis 1.99.1

EditorsNote: 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. Thats ok, were here to help you!

You should have scanned your machine with anti-spyware, virus and trojan tools before using Hijack This. We have written a tutorial that helps remove most known spyware, trojans or viruses, so please, take a minute to read the Basic Spyware, Trojan And Virus Removal tutorial.

If you are familiar with running processes, we also have the official Hijack This Tutorial And How To Post Your Log File which can help you analyze your log file or explain how to post it so we can analyze it for you.

HijackThis, 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.

New stuff:


-Added O23 method: NT Services, which lists all (non-disabled, non-Microsoft) services, like Msconfig.
-Added 'Action taken' info to 'More info on this item' dialog.
Integrated ADS Spy into HijackThis, 'Misc Tools' section.
-Added Spybot-like intro frame for first-time users with access to common tasks.
-Added /autolog commandline parameter to automatically scan, save a logfile and open it.
-Fixed bug when item with IP in a Trusted Zone entry (O15) wasn't fixed.
Added 'Trusted IP ranges' to O15 method.
Updated Ignorelist, Backups list and Process manager to allow multiple selected items.
-Fixed bug where a hosts file with inproper linebreaks would hang HijackThis.

NOTE: Systems infected with the 'Ms4Hd' rootkit parasite will experience crashes in HijackThis 1.99.x since this parasite deliberately crashes programs that try to detect it.
