HiJackThis comes back to life thanks to this new version


The HiJackThis software project has come back to life and has been updated 5 years later thanks to a Ukrainian developer who has retaken it

It is quite possible that many of you still remember the HiJackThis application , an open source program that focuses on the scanning of our Microsoft Windows-based PC, in Search for any sign of malicious software, spyware and other types of unwanted malware .

Say that this app was acquired by the security firm Trend Micro in 2007 and turned it into an open source program in 2012, although the latest version was launched in 2013 being a Beta version that would mean the last one, since the project was abandoned shortly after. With everything and with it, HiJackThis is still downloaded more than 4000 times a week from the Sourceforge portal, and that without counting other repositories of download in which it is offered.

But of course, the lack of updates reduced the effectiveness of the program, so now the developer Polshyn Stanislav has created a new version of HiJackThis to bring the program to the modern era. This fork is compatible with all modern versions of the Windows operating system and introduces new features , to the joy of the usual ones of this app .

Therefore the new version is offered as a portable program for Windows that we can download from your GitHub page and run it. Next we will find a main window in which all the available options of the free program are shown. In principle we can choose to carry out a team analysis so that a report is automatically generated with the failures detected in the operating system from “ Do a system scan and save a logfile ”.

Other functions available in the new version of HiJackThis

At the same time, new users with this program can click on the " Online guide " button to access a brief tutorial in English that explains some of the basics of the software .

Keep in mind that HiJackThis analyzes different system areas and shows its results in the interface of the same program , and if we indicated this at the beginning, create a log file at the same time so we can check it later . It is also worth knowing that this version detects the potential problems related to the security of the team , elements that we can examine one by one to determine if they are really dangerous, or not.

Therefore, the program as such or automatically eliminates those elements that could have some danger, but shows them so that we are the ones who decide by marking those that We want to eliminate. Finally, we will say that the new fork launched by this Ukrainian developer includes numerous improvements with respect to its predecessor, adding support for the detection for new potentially dangerous elements in our Windows.
