    As many people have seen in this forum, there are many things in the hijack this log. Many post their logs on thier posts and wonder what it all means. I am new to the hijack this program and was wondering if i can get a few questions answered.

    1.What does hijack really do?

    2.Why such a long list?

    This one goes for the ones who review the log and tell us what to check

    How do you know what to get rid of?

    I hope that i have not been a bothersome but my curiousity got the best of me:D

    Thanx for your time!:)

    ShenaniganS ,hi :)

    Instead of giving you a long and intricate explanation,I link you to this site that one of the techs here made , Brendan D : http://hjt.wizardsofwebsites.com/

    To your other question: We simply learn to spot the baddies and suspect baddies. Most of the items in an HJT-log are legimit items.

    Die Hard :)
