    Hi

    How do you know that your browser was hijacked? Could you describe exactly what's going wrong with your PC?

    In any case, download HijackThis from here: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html

    Install it, start it, and choose Scan and Save logfile.
    Post the contents of the Log File here.

    (at any cost, DO NOT try to fix any entries in HijackThis without guidance - you could end up damaging your system)

    ARE u using IE , avoid MS products while surfing net , they are the easiest gateways for collapsing windows core .
    Post Hijac this LOG , it will be easier for the members to analyse ur sys services.
    Else if u came to know of any virii name from ur anti-virus products , google them for a tech removal assistance .

    PS) Hijack this is a small s/w . less than 2 MB.

    yes, do run hijackthis, and post its logfile here or directly in www.hijackthis.de for scrutiny and analysis.

    meanwhile i suggest u download, install, update and run any 2 of the following freeware antispywares : adware, ms antispy/defender, spybot

    do download and install 'spywareblaster'. its a great program which remains in the background on ur pc, ensuring that ur browser is not hijacked or malicious activex not installed...its not a scanner...but u can LOCK ur browser pages with tis one too ! u may use ms antispy to restore all ur browser settings to windows default, b4 using this to lock them up !

    Seems u have used older ver. of norton as NAV2006 can prevent any s/w. from changing the default homepage. U can also install trial ver. of Zone alarm (its there in 2-3 digit issues)and chk which application/program is trying to access the internet and prevent them from doing so.

    I agree with sknowonweb - MS products are easiest to hijack specially IE. Better you use netscape or firefox.
