[ Music ] ^M00:00:01 >> Hi, I'm Tom Merritt from CNET.com with a quick tip for using hijack this to delete stubborn files that won't leave you alone. Now occasionally you'll think you've obliterated a nasty file only to have it reappear the next time you boot your PC. Here's how to track it down and kill it. Launch Hijack This. Press open the miscellaneous tools section. Press the button delete a file on reboot. Browse for the file you want to axe. You'll know where it is because Hijack This shows file paths in its scan. You'll need to reboot your computer before the effect takes place but when that's done, the next Hijack This scan should show that the file is gone from your system for good. That's it for this quick tip. I'm Tom Merritt for CNET.com. Little malware, I'll get you.
