HijackThis

I use HijackThis conservatively to get rid of toolbars and BHO.
Are there tricks to using HijackThis more effectively without breaking things unintentionally.

Yes, there's a trick-- do the scan with the save log file option. Then open the log, ctrl-A to select-all, ctrl-C to copy, then go to one or more HJT analyzer sites, paste in the log, and see what they say. I use http://hijackthis.de and http://hjt.iamnotageek.com

These are just guides to help you decide, though. You can mess up some stuff by deleting without careful evaluation. But this method has helped me find some hidden stuff masquerading as something innocuous.

Good luck!
