    I work on previously owned computers for resale. As you can imagine, many of the machines I "inherited" to work on have much malware installed. I'm often times requested to post a HiJack log. I have downloaded this program, a ZIP file, to CD so that I can go from machine to machine to run a log. I'm always told that it appears that I'm running it from a temp folder (which is what HiJack tells me when I start it...) but if I copy it to a folder of it's own (\program files\hijack) it still sees it as a temp folder. What am I not doing? I never get an "install now" screen or option. How can I copy this utility to the harddrive of the computers I work on so that it sees it as it's own directory and not temp? Thanks!

    I originally created the folder myself, but try this setup download. It is not a zip, but the setup.exe that will create the folder. Just save it to a CD.
