I just double checked and the installer does install HijackThis. Very strange. THIS is a direct link to HijackThis. Give that one a try.

Ok, let us try something else. Search your drive for two files. One is called HOSTS and the other LMHOSTS. If you find them check if they have a file extension. If not post them here. If they are long you can send them to hjtbeta@yahoo.com and I will have a look at them.

Also run a online virus scan. And let us know the result.

Boot in safe mode with network support and run a online scan. Let it remove all infected files.

Who or what is "gladiator-antivirus"?
and why should an avast user go to their forum for help.
I believe that's what this forum is for and what it has been doing for quite some time. IMHO

Hi Bob - sorry  :-X
Free help and information is what gladiator is nowadays.
(no product and no donations even accepted, no ads either)

It appeared funkeymunkey could use the help.
Old school nasty removal is a specialty  ;D
Yes, it might be the wrong place for Avast help I agree - All though we try.

ok, that is a start. The hosts file is clean. Disable system restore, reboot and try to run hijackthis again. If it still fails get ad-aware and spybot s&d and run them.
