Curious about Hijack This program

645 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  Die Hard
As many people have seen in this forum, there are many things in the hijack this log. Many post their logs on thier posts and wonder what it all means. I am new to the hijack this program and was wondering if i can get a few questions answered.

1.What does hijack really do?

2.Why such a long list?

This one goes for the ones who review the log and tell us what to check

How do you know what to get rid of?

I hope that i have not been a bothersome but my curiousity got the best of me:D

Thanx for your time!:)

ShenaniganS ,hi :)

Instead of giving you a long and intricate explanation,I link you to this site that one of the techs here made , Brendan D :

To your other question: We simply learn to spot the baddies and suspect baddies. Most of the items in an HJT-log are legimit items.
