You're right... that could very well encourage inexperienced people to try analyzing their own HJT log. To make matters worse, the information posted there is both obsolete and incorrect. I really hope no one makes use of it.
Actually, when you "fix" an entry with HijackThis, you're removing something from the registry. There have been some rather devastating results when well-meaning but ill-formed people have "fixed" everything listed in their (or someone else's ) HijackThis log. The problem was compounded in those cases where there were no backups made because HijackThis was being run from a zip file where it's incapable of making backups.
Not only are these idiots suggesting that people analyse their own HJT logs, but they're compounding the issue by suggesting they clear their system restore points as well, does their stupidity know no bounds.
