    Having just read another thread on this Forum I realised I have an old version of Hijack This 1.97.7. I thought I would uninstall the old version before downloading the up to date version but I could not find this under Add/Remove Programmes. Can anyone please tell me how to uninstall my present version. Thanks.

    The problem is I cannot find HijackThis on my list of Programmes either. If you open HijackThis there is no means of uninstalling it so how on earth do you uninstall this programme. I have the same problem with another spy prevention programme where there is a new version to download but there does not seem to be anyway to uninstall the old version. Roger

    HJt doesn't actually install itself so just find the Hijackthis.exe file and delete it

    there are no registry entries or anything else to delete

    The new 1.99 version will put an uninstall in the add/remove program,s to make it easier
