HiJackThis is a program that can be used to quickly spot browser hijackers, startup programs that you do not want to start automatically and other security risks. 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 Fork, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install hijackthis

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

C:\> choco upgrade hijackthis
