    • Run the HijackThis Installer and it will automatically place HJT in its own folder, usually C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis. Please don't change the directory as it is necessary to create backups.
    • After installing, the program launches automatically, select Scan now and save a log
    • After the scan is complete attach the log into your reply.
    Do not attempt to fix any item yet.
    Do not add anything to the ignore list.
