Pooh, the face that he said Microsoft services and that it's an adware/spyware issue would have suggested it's a Windows device. AFAIK, there is no wide-spread *nix adware (yet!)
No. HiJackThis merely shows what's in the registry. CTRL+ALT+DEL might get you the TaskManager but often many processes are hidden from it's view. ProcessExplorer shows EVERYTHING. I've yet to see anything hide from it.
I am almost positive you can do this with Hijackthis and ctrl alt delete tells most but yah that there should work for ya.

I think I understand the comments about Hijack This. I am running v.1.98.0 and there is an option "add checked to ignore list". This would prevent them being reported in future Somewhat similar to Winsonar.
Another product worth a look is Sentinel (at RuntimeWare.com), which is an integrity checker, application watcher and registry watcher.
If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
