HijackThis v1.98.2

It is a small but very effective program, and in some cases difficult to use. It requires expierence with internet explorer, or the borwser which you are running. What it does, upon execution, is list all of the changes and additions that have been made to your browser since it was initially installed. For instance, if you download the google toolbar, it will show a reference of it on the list. However, it will list parts of internet explorer that you need in order for it to function properly (i.e. critical updates). You must have a general knowledge of what should be and shouldn't be installed with your browser.

It might sound difficult, but it is really not that complicated. I was hit a couple of times with the BargainBuddy spyware, and so when I loaded this program I deleted everything with the word "bargain" and "buddy" in it.

Seriously though, you could eliminate 90 percent of your problems if you just stay the fuck away from Internet Explorer, try a different browser such as Mozilla.

******** XP USERS ********

If you are ever infected with a virus or any type of spyware: Go to Start, then Run, type in restore, and then run rstrui.exe.

I stumbled across this tool when something vicious hit my computer and ruined Internet Explorer. I went to delete a couple of things and lost my internet connection as well. What this does is allow you to restore your computer to the settings of any previous date. I just went in, picked the day before (when my computer was uninffected) and it completely restored it to those exact settings. Not only that but it didn't erase any of my documents I created during that day.

I've only tried it once and it worked to perfection.

This feature is likely on newer versions of windows but I don't remember ever seeing it on Windows 98.

Has this ever failed for anyone?
