Just when I think I have found every tech security tool out there, I am introduced to another one. In this case, during a visit to the site “Tech Thoughts”, I was introduced to a system analysis utility, called “a-squared HiJackFree” that is geared toward assisting advanced users in the detection and removal of all types of HiJackers, Spyware, Adware, Trojans and Worms (see clip below). I downloaded the program and performed an analysis of my system as a test drive. I found the program very easy to navigate and understand. The analysis showed the autorun entries (which can be disabled for troubleshooting); services installed and running processes; local ports that are open; and even Explorer and browser plugins. The a-squared HiJackFree also has an “Online Analysis” function built-in that will help you identify which autoruns, processes, addons or open ports are harmful.
I tip my “Tech Hat” to Bill Mullins for introducing me and my readers to this great utility.
