HiJackThis

I have the version of HiJackThis that has to install. I am looking for the stand alone version.

If anyone know were to get this, I would appreciate the information.

Thank you

That version will install, it is not the standalone version.

From the above link,

Quote:
There are two different downloads available for HijackThis. The standard download is a MSI installer version that will install the program into the C:\Program Files (x86)\Trend Micro\HiJackThis folder and create a startup menu icon for it. HijackThis is also available as a standalone EXE file that can be run from any directory or from a removable media device. It is highly recommended that you use the Installer version so that backups are located in one place and can be easily used.


Usage Instructions:

Note: You should only use HijackThis if you have advanced computer knowledge or if you are under the direction of someone who does. Improper usage of this pr ogram can cause problems with how your computer operates.

You're welcome Huffman. It does appear to start an install routine when you run it doesn't it? It is a stand alone version though and could be run from a USB stick.
