Cant install HijackThis - backdoor trojan
Hi TSG,

I'm trying to assist my bf with the removal a backdoor trojan however, we can't seem to install Hijack This. Upon saving it to the desktop (also tried saving to alternate folder "My Documents"), we keep getting an error message "There is a component missing" (using this link to download: http://thespykiller.co.uk/index.php?...tpmod;dl=get10)

Any help is appreciated, this forum is great!

btw, he's running a pc with xp professional version 2002 (service pack 3), IE6. The computer has been stuck in safe mode for months, when he tries to run it in normal mode Microsoft windows ask him to "validate Microsoft" with fields requiring he enter his credit card info and ATM PIN!! Thankfully, he did not do this.
