  HijackThis.exe - HijackThis startup scan

Name or Startup Item HijackThis startup scan
Status / Key (Please check below) U
Command or Data HijackThis.exe

Description

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 knowledgable folks before deleting anything. Required if you'd like HijackThis to run a scan at startup, and show the results when new items are found (if so, check the appropriate box in the "Config" section")
