HiJackThis Fork can detect and correct the changes in the most vulnerable areas of the operating system caused by adware, spyware, malware, and other unwanted software.
Mostly there is an extensive list of changes or improvements over the original HijackThis including new operating system support and too much more to list here as it would take many paragraphs.
The interface should be familiar to HijackThis users with some visual updates. You can scan, scan, and save a log file as well as a tools section with the process manager, hosts file manager, ADS spy, and more. Right-clicking on any entry will allow you to get information, including searching Google.
HiJackThis has a couple of catches. First, it’s only for advanced users. You can get into a lot of trouble by deleting the wrong thing rendering your operating system inoperable. Second, HijackThis has become mostly obsolete with the growth of full-blown anti-malware removal tools.
The attempt here is to use HijackThis’s base functionality while updating for the modern operating system and newer threats. Fans of HijackThis who have found it’s no longer useful for them might find HiJackThis Fork very helpful, especially for technicians.
