Recommended Posts

This is the hidden content, please

HiJackThis Fork is a free utility for Microsoft Windows that scans your computer for settings changed by adware, spyware, malware and other unwanted programs.

HiJackThis Fork primarily detects hijacking methods rather than comparing items against a pre-built database. This allows it to detect new or previously unknown malware – but it also makes no distinction between safe and unsafe items. Users are expected to research all scanned items, and only remove items from their PC when absolutely appropriate.

Therefore, FALSE POSITIVES ARE LIKELY. If you are ever unsure, you should consult with a knowledgeable expert BEFORE deleting anything.


    Lists non-default settings in the registry, hard drive and memory related to autostart
    Generates organized, easily readable reports
    Does not use a database of specific malware, adware, etc
    Detects potential methods used by hijackers
    Can be configured to automatically scan at system boot up


    Short logs

Log analysis

IMPORTANT: HiJackThis Fork does not make value-based calls on what is considered good or bad. You must exercise caution when using this tool. Avoid making changes to your computer settings without thoroughly studying the consequences of each change.
