Hi I recently downloaded Hijackthis and read a bit about it on http://mjc1.com/mirror/hjt/
I'm not the brightest lightbulb but I think that it is going to something i could use on my pc. One problem, I dont know what I am supposed to have and not supposed to have. Are there any links or websites I could find a reference guide on or something that would inform me what some of the programs are so I know what I need to get rid of. Thanks to anyone with the knowledge to explain it to me.

well like lets say you have winamp ....and you have no idea what it is...i dont think there is a website like that but search google for whatever your program is and it will provide you with more than enough info

Well, it's not easy to explain exactly how to use it. Reading will be your best teacher.
here is a log tutorial http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/htlogtutorial.html
But by far, you'd do yourself a big favor by reading the posts at TomCoyote's Forums.
wouldn't hurt to just do a google search on hijackthis.. (there are a lot of places)
As you probably have figured.. You don't just go deleting all the entries hijackthis shows..
We've done a bit of talking about hijackthis here at AO, but not a lot in terms of interpreting logs.

Thanks for the reply's I will check out the two links offered to me. I am just worried my <experieces will have me deleting or removing something needed.
Edit: I will be back on in the morning before I head to class, thanks again to anyone with good information.
