In addition to this scan and remove capability HijackThis comes with several tools useful in manually removing malware from a computer.
IMPORTANT: HijackThis does not determine what is good or bad. Do not make any changes to your computer settings unless you are an expert computer user.
Advanced users can use HijackThis to remove unwanted settings or files.

Best application to block spy ware really worth it.
HiJackThis is an essential security tool for anyone running Windows who's willing to accept the potential risk of removing the items found. In other words, pretty much everybody who can perform their own Windows reinstall. I've been using HJT for many years, since the good ol' days of Merijn.nu (the original author's website). It is the one tool that I haven't had to switch from (unlike my antivirus programs), largely because of its simplicity. It's easy and fast, and I highly recommend it for, well, everyone.
Good program. Simple and easy to install and useful.
