Salut tout le monde,
J'ai réalisé la traduction française de la future version 3 de HiJackThis Fork et le développeur m'a demandé de vous faire suivre le message ci-dessous!
"Colok, I have some personal request for you, if it's ever possible.
I compiled an answer to this forum: viewtopic.php?t=61637
But unfortunately, my country is in spam-list and I can't register there even using French VPN.
Is it possible you left 1 post in that topic on my behalf? (I attached it)
I would really appreciate it."

"Hi @all. I'm a developer of HiJackThis Fork and I do like to clarify some details.
Since my country is in spam-list, I asked my friend to post here my message.
If you think HiJackThis missing some items important for malware cure,
feel free to propose improvements in 'issue' section of github repository.
HiJackThis will never become a FRST. It has a different phylosofy:
- compact logs
- fast scan
- open sourse
- item fix using interface
- individual backups
- scan at system boot up using ignore-list
HiJackThis has scan areas that FRST doesn't see, and vice versa,
FRST has areas, that HJT doesn't see, but it doesn't matter,
because, e.g. for browser hijacker there is a better tools, such as AdwCleaner.
Detection of most modern malware hijacking methods (excepting rootkits)
was included for these 3+ years of active development of the Fork.
List of modified files is not required if you removed all autorun points. Everything else is a garbage.
List of installed software can be equired using integrated Uninstall manager tool.
List of system events is mostly needed for system troubleshooting, not malware cases.
Anyway, HJT also has new section in O7 with similar but unique functionality. See manual.
LNK checker is a separate plugin, much powerful than FRST, becauses it has analysis core,
trained by real malware for several years and also produces compact log (not a full LNK list).
Also, you can check a mark "additional scan" to say HiJackThis to scan specific areas like:
- Drivers, etc ...
Eventually, you can't compare these tools without deep understanding.
All at all, HJT Fork is 100% rewritten project, it has another analysis methods,
even in such "simple" task like digital signature check.
We are using bunch of tools called 'Autologger' for 8+ years (HJT Fork for 3+ years)
in several large forums, including Kaspersky Club forum.
This automatic logs collectior includes:
- AVZ (include antirootkit)
- RSIT (include additional info like in FRST)
- Check Browsers' LNK
And he proved to be effective in most cases of curing the malware.
By the way, the closest HJT version will be translated into French
