I went to "Hijack this" and did a scan and for the life of me I can not find a button which would say "save" and would ask me to where to save. Sorry the most fundamental operation I seem to be having a problem. I read what to do and I will go back and read again.


"The Scan Button has a new Caption. Save Log." of which when I went back and read the quick start I rescanned and still did not see the above quote. I am using the 1.99 version is that correct. I will figure this out with the help of all these good people reading this. So I will be patient.

When you start HJT the first time, a "new users quickstart" screen appears, the first button will be "do a system scan and save a log file". If you use this, the log file will automatically saved into the same folder where the HijackThis.exe is located and it will be loaded into notepad after the scan. However, if this screen doesn't show up (you can uncheck a checkbox to bypass this newbie screen), the "scan" -button will change to "save" after the scan, by clicking it you will prompted to save the file by a standard file selection window. Do you have the most recent (1.99.1) version?

"When you start HJT the first time" Now don't get upset with me but on my computer the forth word I can't make out. That's in the quote above. Are you saying that I don't use the "Hijack this" program first to scan my computer?

The very same button you clicked to do the scan should read "Save log" after the scan. That's what the phrase "The Scan Button has a new Caption. Save Log" means. If it doesn't, HJT is somehow messed up, maybe due to the infection. Try renaming the Hjackthis.exe to something else then (like Britney.com or Spears.com) and try it again.

Forget what I said above. This time I double clicked the scan or clicked the second time for scan and it led me to save to my doc. and I also saw the script in notepad I am going to copy and paste.

I hope this is better. Also , I forgot to tell all that I just had cancer prostate surgery and am recovering and I am 62 and a bit slow at times but when I get the hang of it I am fine.

Well done :) Can you remember the names of the three infections or do you still have the log files of the virus scan that told you of these infections? I can identify only two of them at the moment. The indication of the third one should be the last entry in the HJT log but I can't find any reference on which malware it generated.

I forgot to tell all that I just had cancer prostate surgery and am recovering and I am 62 and a bit slow at times but when I get the hang of it I am fine.

I'm crossing my fingers for you that your recovery is taking the best possible progress. And don't worry, you'll find all friendly and patient people here and you can't imagine how slow I can be at times...:) I'll continue browsing through your log tomorrow. (Need a nap now..3:15am local time here)

OK, I KNOW THIS IS GOING TO BE HARD TO UNDERSTAND BUT THIS OTHER GUY WHO JUMPED IN OVER THE ONE WHO WAS HELPING ME OUT, I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT'S OK AND YOU SEIZED THE MOMENT!! I MUST SAY "QUITE ALOT OF INSTRUCTION FOR THIS OLD MAN. HOWEVER I DID THREE "AVG" SCANS AND FOUND THIS TIME 9 TROJAN VIRUSES. (SPELLING) WHEN I WAS GOING TO CONFIRM AND RE-SCAN "AVG" PROMPTED SAID IT HEALED ALL 9. WELL, I RE-SCANNED ANYWAY 3 MORE TIMES AND ALL THREE SHOWED A CLEAN SLATE. SO FOR NOW I AM GOING TO LEAVE IT AT THAT. "AVG" WILL PROMPT ME ALWAYS WHEN THERE IS A PROBLEM.

I believe I have some not right when I click "contron, alt and delete"
can I can the start up program and list it on the sight?

0

I know you are trying to help and thanks. Basically I scalled my computer with AVG three times and the first time it said it healed the virsuses. Then I scalled two more times to be sure and the program said there were no viruses found. But I found something funny when I clicked "control-alt-delete" some of the programs running in the background were unusual. So, I was wondering if you want me to run a different scan? I can't think of the name but I know where it is and how to do this.
