Yet another Hijack log

  1. I thought I had tried "all the ways" to save this thing as txt,
    but apparently not :(

    Thanks for the help!

    Now, I just hope there's nothing malicious in there!

    I want to make sure my old system is clean before
    I transfer anything to my new one (that I have NOT
    hooked to the internet yet, and won't till I get all
    the security apps loaded on there I learned about
    on this great site, AND get my router hooked up
    and working). I've run Norton 05 (yes, NOW I know
    it's not that great, so will try one of the others,
    whatever works with SE), AdAware and SpyBot.
    So - hopefully this will show up clean and I can

    Well, well, didn't seem to upload.

    I discovered when I Renamed it, it now calls
    itself "HijackThis.txt.log"

    Guess I'm still not out of the woods with this.

    While messing with it (the Hijack log file), I tried to open it.
    Won't open. Either as HTJ.log or as HTJ.txt.log.

    Where does it say that nothing to do with Windows
    can be easy!!??

    open "my computer", and go to tools -> folder options. Under the view tab, scroll down a little and deselect the "hide extentions for known file types", and click apply.

    Browse to your HJT log, right click on it, and choose rename. Then delete the .log extention from the end of the filename so that it reads "HJT.txt" instead of "HJT.txt.log". You should be able to upload it then.

    It's probably somewhere in the EULA where nobody will read it :)
