Hijack This not working

  1. I'm having a problem. I downloaded HijackThis.exe from the link in that stickied thread, yet it's not working. Whenever I click on "Do a system scan and save a file log", I get this pop-up message. After I click "OK", HijackThis completes the scan and gives me this pop-up message.

    Could anyone help me? I would greatly appreciate it.

    If it matters, I'm running Windows Vista.

    Have you tried right clicking it and selecting run as administrator? That might help. Also have you renamed it to crusty?

    Firewall or other security blocking? VISTA blocking the install?

    i think that its Vista.

    I just checked on my Vista system and ran into the same problem.

    To get it to work all you have to do is right click on the shortcut and select Run as Administrator, it worked after that no problem.

    Its just Vista being funny about the privleges.
