Create a folder and unzip the HiJackThis download to the folder. Do not unzip the HiJackThis download to your Desktop or the Temp folder - it won't work.
Doubleclick "HijackThis.exe". First, update HiJackThis by pressing the "Config" button, then press "Misc Tools", followed by "Check for update online". If you downloaded an updated HJT, click "Yes" at the "Open the file?" prompt. If you did not update, press the "Back" button .
Press "Scan".When the scan is finished, use "Save Log" button and save the log as a text file. Its best to save your text file in the same folder as where you put HiJackThis.
DO NOT FIX ANYTHING YOURSELF UNTIL INSTRUCTED TO DO SO ONLY BY A CCSP EXPERT. MOST OF THE HJT LOG ENTRIES ARE NEEDED TO RUN YOUR COMPUTER. REMOVING THE NEEDED ENTRIES CAN CAUSE SERIOUS DAMAGE TO YOUR COMPUTER.
