Part 2: Malware is evolving, HijackThis not – OTL Log/Report Tool as replacement

Like I wrote a couple of months ago, malware is evolving at a very fast rate, sadly HijackThis isn’t evolving so quickly. In OTL (formerly OTListIt2) by Oldtimer my board Smokey’s Security Forums found an excellent replacement for HijackThis, from now on my board will only accept OTL logs. Again, OTL will serve our members looking for malware removal help in an optimal way, and it will accomplish at the same time our high board demands and standards.

Like before, if you think your PC is infected or if you want to be sure your PC is clean, feel free to post your OTL log here: OTL (formerly OTListIt2) Log Analysis and Malware Hunting, Removal & Cleaning (English language) or Hilfe bei Problemen mit Viren, Trojanern, Würmern, Spyware, Adware, Ransomware, Popups und sonstigen Schädlingen (German – Deutsch language).
Please keep in mind, that (malware removal) help will only be offered to registered board members. Of course board registration and all help is free. You are invited to register here.

Safe computing! 🙂

On behalf of Starbuck, OTL Team Leader Smokey’s Security Forums,

HijackThis & OTL (formerly OTListIt2) Log Analysis and Malware Removal & Cleaning

What are HijackThis and OTL (formerly OTListIt2)

HijackThis is a free utility which quickly scans your Windows computer to find settings that may have been changed by spyware, malware or other unwanted programs. HijackThis creates a report, or log file, with the results of the scan.

OTL is a very sophisticated Log/Report Tool, doing the same as HijackThis and a lot more. You can see it as the successor of HJT.

IMPORTANT: HijackThis/OTL does not determine what is good or bad.
Do not make any changes to your computer settings using HijackThis and/or OTL unless instructed by a member of the HJT/OTL Analyzers/Malware Hunters group of Smokey’s Security Forums.

Procedures before submitting a HJT or OTL log to Smokey’s Security Forums

– Please register on the forum… Here, it is for free.

– Before submitting a HJT/OTL log to Smokey’s Security Forums, we ask that you follow this procedure first as described… Here.

– At the moment you have followed all instructions post your HJT or OTL log on the forum… Here. German – Deutsch customers can post here.
Then please wait for your log to be answered. Answers, help and support will be given by full qualified HJT/OTL Log Analyzers/Malware Hunters. The offered HJT/OTL services are for free also.

See ya, 😉
