If you can, delete the one you have and download HijackThis.  It will create a directory folder for you in C\Program files.

I deleted the old one, downloaded the new one, however I get an error message saying that the "set up files are corrupted".  Huh?

Try renaming the executable program from HijackThis to just hjt and see if you can run it then...

Where did you save the HJT file to? Open Notepad, click File/Open and locate the HJT log. It should now open in Notepad.
