Hijackthis Log Analyzer Frequently Asked Questions:

What is Hijackthis?

If persistent spyware is bogging down your computer, you might need HijackThis. The tiny program examines vulnerable or suspect parts of your system, such as browser helper objects and certain types of Registry keys. Pressing the Scan button generates a log of dozens of items, most of which are just customizations. Don't check off an item and hit the Fix Checked button unless you're sure it's malware. Clicking Info on Selected Item tells you why the entry was flagged as suspicious, but not whether it's actually malware. To find that out you can use our Hijackthis Log Analyzer

What does Hijackthis.co website do?

Hijackthis.co is a Log File analyzer to help you determine your Hijackthis Log File. All of our results are gone through manually, but are only meant to be an analysis.

What do all the icons mean?

There are several icons throughout our log results. Here is an explanation of them:

Entries Marked with this icon, are marked as safe, and good!
Entries Marked with this icon, are marked as bad, and sometimes nasty! Most of these are malware, and are safe to remove.
Entries Marked with this icon, are marked as Unnessesary, and can be removed with no problem. Removing these can sometimes speed up your computer.
Entries Marked with this icon, are marked as out dated, even though possibly good, you should update the application to the latest version.
Entries Marked with this icon, are marked as unknown, either means we do not have it in our database yet, or we just dont know what it is, and will later be updated!
Not sure of the entry, you can click this icon to open a google search of the entry in a new window. You can then determine by the results if it is a good or bad entry.
