HighjackThis v.2.0.4 scans your pc and generates a log file of registry and file settings commonly manipulated by malware as well as good software.

I first came across this a while back but was never really a big fan of this program as it has potential to cause greater harm then good. This is due to the nature of the program itself.

What happens when you run the program? Well the program will run a scan of the most commonly known malware settings within the registry and running processes. Once completed a log file is produced and then you are given options in which to handle each of the running processes and registry settings.

Now this is where the untrained user can completely damage their windows operating system to a point it is unrepairable, as there program does not show if the running process is in fact infected with malware but simply that the process is running.

If you know what you are doing with this tool then it is indeed a good way to remove threats, however it is not for the average user.
