HiJackThis Fork is a free, open source, Windows utility that scans your PC for settings that have changed from adware, spyware, malware, and other unwanted programs.
It primarily detects piracy methods, rather than comparing items to a pre-installed database. Detects new or unknown malware but also does not distinguish between safe and unsafe objects. Users should scan all scanned items marked by the program and remove them from their computer only if they are absolutely sure.
If you are unsure, you should consult an expert before deleting anything.
