HijackThis

2.0.5-beta

There are no package test results for this package

This package is exempt from moderation. While it is likely safe for you, there is more risk involved.

HijackThis is a program that can be used to quickly spot home page hijackers and startup programs that you do not want to start automatically. This program is a not anti-virus program, but rather a enumerator that lists programs that are starting up automatically on your computer as well as other configuration information that is commonly hijacked. Since there is no filter on what it reports, you should research each entry before you remove anything using this tool.

To install HijackThis, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install hijackthis --pre

To upgrade HijackThis, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade hijackthis --pre

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
