Spyware and virus HouseCleaning...

This is very old but could be very useful for some friends of mine that ask my support with virus and spyware.

HijackThis is a useful tool that allows you to identify spyware and malware, this is achieved by scanning special zones of the registry as well as the hard disk drive, the results being listed in a structured window.

A really useful feature of HijackThis is the creation of a log file that could be submitted to online services such as Hijackthis homepage or IAmNotAGeek .
