Hijackthis for Windows 7

Can someone give me a link to a hijackthis download for Windows 7?  When I try to run the version I have I get a message "HijackThis.exe is not a valid Win32 application".

you may want to run the iexplore.exe version of rkill before hijackthis

HJT has been outdated/ineffective for years.
You are much better off running "OTL" found here:

HJT used to be the tool of choice for a lot of IT types. The creator (Merjin) sold it to Trend, but they refused to hire him to maintain it. Without his skill and  knowledge, it is much less than it once was.

He is now one of the 12-15 MS MVP's working as a developer for MalwareBytes.

For personal reasons, I am now partial to the tool developed by a guy named "Old Timer" - gotta love that name!

Thanks for closing this out and the comments.
