What is the hijack this log? How do I run it and how does it affect other programs on my computer? Specifically my norton internet security program. I have the virius that gives you a security alert that tells you your computer is infected with PSW .x-vir trojan. From what I have read on this site this is very common. I am very cautious, because I have had problem with fixes in the past. Thanks for any help you can give.

Welcome to TSG :)


Please click Here to download HijackThis to your desktop.

Click the Download button. When the Trend Micro HJT install box appears, double click on the HJTInstall.exe. Click on Install.

It will be installed by default here: C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis

A shortcut to the application will also be placed on your Desktop.

The program will open automatically after installation.

You can double-click the icon that was placed on the Desktop to run subsequent HijackThis scans or you can use the icon inside the folder. The folder HijackThis is where you will find the HJT logs that you save. When you use the application to remove anything, you will also find the backup copies made by HJT inside this folder.

Close all other windows except HijackThis.

Click on "Do a system scan and save logfile" When the log pops up in Notepad, copy and paste that file back here.

Do NOT have HijackThis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
