Hijack This Can't Install

Hi!

While working on my problem with AOL disconnects, I have been attempting to complete all the preparatory steps like running Cleanup, AVG, Spybot etc. However, I can not seem to get Hijack This installed. My Mcafee detects a worm and yanks it. I was able to find a target that Mcafee didn't stop, but then during install I encounter a different problem...an error stating that access is denied because an error occurred while trying to rename a file in the destination directory; Movefile failed; code 5. I'm given the options of abort, retry or ignore. Retry yields the same result and the error states that ignore is not recommended so I abort the install. Any suggestions?

You do not need to "install" Hijackthis. It's just a regular application that you can open on the spot.

Where did you download it?

Thanks for your response....I attempted your link. Again it is blocked by McAfee which states it detects a worm in the file and yanks it. I have noted on the HijackThis source website that the Mcafee problem is a known issue but I didn't see a resolution posted. I'm hopeful that someone on the forum has identified a workaround!

Thanks,
Michelle
