Submitted by scriptdaemon on January 5, 2013 - 11:54pm
HijackThis Portable 2.0.4 Rev 2 has been released. HijackThis is a settings scanner that can find common settings changes made by malware and other software. Advanced users can use it to find and reset settings that have changed. Like most system tools, this app requires admin rights. It's packaged in PortableApps.com Format so it can easily integrate with the PortableApps.com Platform. And it's open source and completely free.
Revision 2: Fixed an issue with HijackThis showing in the wrong category in the PortableApps.com Platform
HijackThis scans your computer's browser and operating system settings to generate a log file of the current state. You can selectively remove unwanted settings and files from your computer. Because the settings identified in a HijackThis log file can belong to both legitimate software and unwanted malware, it is important to use extreme caution when choosing to remove anything using HijackThis. HijackThis also comes with a process manager, HOSTS file editor, and alternate data stream scanner.
PortableApps.com Installer / PortableApps.com Format
HijackThis Portable is packaged in a PortableApps.com Installer so it will automatically detect an existing PortableApps.com installation when your drive is plugged in. It supports upgrades by installing right over an existing copy, preserving all settings. And it's in PortableApps.com Format, so it automatically works with the PortableApps.com Platform including the Menu and Backup Utility.
