 Security Help2Go Detective - automated HiJackThis log file analysis
Thanks to Bear at ComputerHelpClub for mentioning this website.
HiJackThis is a must have system scanner and repair tool. It's very useful when you have malware problems. Help2Go Detective will help you figure out what to do once you've scanned a PC with HiJackThis. I tried the Help2Go detective and I was expecting it to give me 2 or 3 pages of detailed analysis. I was surprised to see only one page because it shows only the items it feels need to be fixed. I like that. When I use the other analysis website at I get many false positive hits on entries it doesn't recognize. I think this is an easy to use tool for those of us who are part time security analysts whenever we need to be.
Warning: Do not use HiJackThis unless you have some experience removing malware. See my HiJackThis link above for help.
