Hijackthis not opening

Recommended Posts



My computer has multiple problems right now, but in order to fix them I need to be able to post a hijackthis log.

The problem is that I've downloaded hijackthis and it is not opening. I've deleted and re-downloaded it multiple times but it is still not opening.

Any help would be appreciated.


Windows Version: XP Home; Service Pack 3


Computer Specifications;

Hp pavilion a520n

3200+(2.20-GHz) AMD athlon XP Processor

960mb PC2700 DDR SDRAM memory

160 GB 7200RPM Ultra DMA Hard drive


Thank you :P

Some malware items detect HijackThis and stop it from running.


Please try the following


1) Rename the hijackthis.exe file e.g. to myhjt.exe and try running this.


2) If it will still not run please post in the "Help with Stubborn Infections - HijackThis Logs go here " forum and explain that HijackThis will not run. The experts will be able to recommend some alternative tools to try.
