Hi Corrine

Is this version any good, just checking as it may be useful when Hijackthis is not operable

Hi, Mike.  Hijackfree can generate a HJT-compatible log but operates very differently. 

To provide instructions would be rather complex.  (Launch a2 scanner, select Other, Click the + sign to access Explorer AddOns, Click Active X and wait while it loads, Select C:\xxxxxxx and . . . ) 

In addition, there is not a white list for services, thus producing a very long list.  There are other differences as well.  I think TM's version will be better once details are ironed out.  We also have other alternatives that work quite well.

Thanks Corrine. I did try it out, but wasn't excited by it and do understand it would be trickey to guide someone through it.
