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, just 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 should always consult with knowledgable
folks before deleting anything.
HijackThis is compatible with all Microsoft Windows versions.
