First off, this is an awesome site. I had no idea this existed, but will sure spread the word throughout my fellow IT buddies here at work.

Has HijackThis ever been made portable? It's a single exe, and know that it's been acquired by Trend Micro, but was wondering if it was still able to be ported to a portable form.


P.S. Is there a tutorial someone could link on creating portable programs?

I'm not sure about HijackThis.

Sure, it's great application, but isn't it designed to stay on one PC and monitor all changes made?

Idk, I'm just a computer "user"

Anyways, if it's a tutorial you want, an tutorial you shall receive:

And now to cover my arse:

(Please note: I do not take any responsibility for this tutorial. I found it on the web, downloaded it, and forgot about it. When Kars85 asked about it, he jogged my memory, so I uploaded it to a freewebs account for him and others to access. It is not my intellectual property, nor am I distributing it with intent to profit from said distribution)

it's portable but not stealth. Writes settings to the registry.

It's just about the most useful anti spyware tool around.

sysinternal's(now owned by m$) process-explorer and killbox by ??.. both portable and free sit in the same folder on my thumb drive. great trinity of spyware removal tools.

hijackthis was built by a regular joe i think, but trend bought it and i'm guessing it will get less portable and worked into some costly package. still free for now. get it while you can.

I don't know what it means for an app to be
"stealthy" so I would just like someone to reply with a Yes or No answer to this question: Is HijackThis able to be ran off of my USB drive and still work just as effectively as if I has it running from the computers hard drive?



Thank you
