    "not too shabby"

    August 5, 2004  |   By jonrd1

    Version: HijackThis 1.98.2

    Summary

    A great man once said "Speak softly but carry a big stick".
    This is the app they were talking about.
    It's deceptively basic in start up and appearance, and it DOES seem to do it's job. However, the devil is in the details. This program DOES pick out some bad ("Mal ware") things that are running, but in fact DO belong there. IF you select to have them "fixed", it WILL actually do some pretty serious damage to your system. Albeit these are things that CAN be repaired/remedied.
    BE ADVISED!!! DO A "Restore Point" prior to even THINKIG starting or even downloading this app. However, having said that. 1)It DID do the job where 4 or 5 other major spy ware apps didn't/couldn't. 2) They DO give you an opt out option in their "Info" button, which describes in detail what you want to select, and shows a great deal of "tech savvy support". They tell you in VERY plain English those certain apps (and they call them by the specific name, i.e. MSXL...), MAY be beneficial, and are legitimate, and they advise you to basically leave it along and not to attempt to "fix" that “Malware”.
    This application is not for the faint at heart. After having ran Ad-ware, Spybot-Search and Destroy, PestPastrol, Spy Sweeper AND the AOL Security adware blocking program, I was at my wits end. And I would have just as soon re-formatted my hard drive as try again, and still come up “infected”. THIS application saved my computer and saved me from having to do that. As far as I can tell, it’s completely cleaned up and done away with the malware that was causing me SO many sleepless nights, and hours of frustration, in just a matter of minutes. Good luck and happy hunting!
