I need hyjack this to make a log as i am having problems with IE. However when straight after I have downloaded the setup file from this website Mc Afee anit virus detects a virus in a file and deletes it straight away so I cannot install it. The virus name is W32/Generic.worm:p2p. I have also stopped Mc Afee from running but I still get the same result. Any help will be appreciated.

Are you sure you downloaded HijackThis?

You spelled it Hyjackthis and that may be a malware file.

Follow the link in my signature for the real file.

Thanks for the quick reply, I downloaded the file from the link on my other computer that has Norton anti virus and had no trouble. Maybe it was to do with Mc Afee because I am 100% certain that I downloaded it from this site.

This is a well known problem with McAfee; its basically giving you a false alarm because of the nature of the HiJack this program.

Have a poke about in the settings and look for any Heuristic settings or whatver McAfee like to call it. Something about "looking for viruses that haven't been properly identified" or similar.

Thanks for that info, i'll keep it mind, im not going to go through the hassle yet as my connection is back up running (most likely to be technical difficulties with ISP as the connection was not working properly on both computers and the BT site didn't load up). Problem solved thanks for your help Numb Remxed and Neil Jones.
