Am I wrong in thinking that "if I don't change my computer layout(neither adding new hardware nor new programs) my HJT log will reflect it", and "if I then get infected my HJT log will equally reflect the infection as a difference", - one should perhaps then compare copies of this before and after situation, wouldn't then the reading of ones own logs become simpler for people newish to HJT. If this is a bad idea or a good idea with reservations, please spare a words to explain here.

Legitimate programs. and new versions of HJT both produce different logs. If you were to never change your system, and never update HJT it may work, but is not practical for most people.

Add to that the fact that not everything is shown in a HijackThis log and you will understand why it's not common practice.
