    I can't delete this ISTsvc shit now. Everytime I try, I get a "used by another person" message.

    This is what I do with Hijack.

    Remove EVERYTHING. Just leave the stuff you want to keep running on the startup.

    The only major change it does is it removes startup pages. You can just go back and change that later. I have never had any ill effects from removing everything. If something returns the next time you run hijack, then you have some other problems.

    IMO, I find Ad-Aware or even the new Microsoft AntiSpyware apps to be better.

    I generally just remove the stuff I KNOW is bad. If I don't know what it is, I google it. There is a site that usually pops up first thing (something like liutilities or similiar) that will tell you if it's adware or not, and whether it's bad/good.
