I downloaded the "HijackThis" zip file from this web site and when I try to open it after downloading my computer opens Acrobat Reader and I get the following error message:

"There was an error opening this document. File does not begin with '%PDF-'"

Does anyone here know why the zip file won't open and why Acrobat Reader opens and views this file as a document when I try to open the zip file??

Thank you for your help. I tried downloading HijackThis again and now I'm getting the following message when I try to run the program:

A required .DLL file, MSVBVM60.DLL was not found

Consequently, I still can't run HijackThis

What should I do now??

Thank you!

Download the following MS run-time installer which will install the missing file and
allow you to use hijackthis.
