    Although the download site says ‘Hijack Hunter” was last updated in January 2011, that need not be a bar to its efficacy on all Windows systems; MajorGeeks is still pushing a version of “Hijack This” bearing last update in 2005 (still usable on XP), and even Emisoft’s (VERY dangerous for non-advanced users to use) “BlitzBlank” at Emisoft’s own site moments ago shows last update December 2010; it’s what these utilities show that matters, and except for platform compatabilities not much usually needs updating. I know supreme computer experts don’t need to know that, but some consumer-level users might worry if they see a 2010 last update for “Hijack Hunter”. Cheers!

    May you help me to solve this problem, (This webpage wants to run the following add-on: ‘Adobe Flashrumtime’ Adobe system Incorporated’ .) after installing Adobe Flash Player new version 14.00.145 please ?
    Urgently need your help please ? Ty

  3. If it is some LEGITIMATE website that you trust, which is prompting you, you may or may not chose to install the Adobe Flash plugin. It must be some advt or some part of the content, which may be requiring this plugin. If you have already installed the Adobe Flash Player (the real thing and not some malware masquerading as one), you may allow it to run. If in doubt, simply uninstall this plugin or software.
