Hijack This225 is a general browser hijacker and detector tool. Rather than searching for specific spyware, it targets the methods used by spyware applications to infect your machine. When first run, read the warning very carefully!
Although Hijack This looks like a very small tool, it is extremely comprehensive and contains many options. It is most commonly used in Anti-Spyware forums, where people seeking help are advised to post a log from this tool to help with troubleshooting an infected system.
Hijack This will display all of the items it finds, suspicious or legitimate no distinction is made, which is what makes this tool both powerful and dangerous! To learn more about a listed item, click on it and click the Info on Selected Item button. To remove items, check the box to the left of the item you want to remove and click the Fix Checked button.
Hijack This will also display a comprehensive list of programs that start when Windows boots up. Click the Config button, and click Misc Tools in the window that appears.
Clicking on Generate StartupList log will, as the text in the window says, produce a list of all the auto-starting programs and display them in Notepad.
