HijackThis can be downloaded as a standalone executable or as an installer. The standalone application allows you to save and run HijackThis.exe from any folder you wish, while the installer will install HijackThis in a specific location and create desktop shortcuts to that executable. When using the standalone version you should not run it from your Temporary Internet Files folder as your backup folder will not be saved after you close the program. In order to avoid the deletion of your backups, please save the executable to a specific folder before running it. We suggest that you use the HijackThis installer as that has become the standard way of using the program and provides a safe location for HijackThis backups.
