    Correct. However, Wilders does not analyze hijack logs any longer. Rather than guessing, it's better to have an expert check your computer log to pinpoint the problem.
    Several forums offer to analyze logs and posters are directed to such sites.

    Blackspear put together some General Cleaning Instructions for those that would like to try their hand at cleaning up
    the computer.
