I have a hijacker that keeps trying to take over my browser home page and search page. I have run Win Anti Virus, Spy Bot, Microsoft Spyware and Bulletproof. Some of the programs are able to see the hijacker and Microsoft will even block it's hijack attempts for awhile, but none of my programs seems able to remove it from my computer. Every time I boot up, it is always there trying to hijack me. Please help me get rid of this annoying pest. Thankyou in advance.

I am running Windows XP pro SP2

Hey there- I had a horrible hijacker but i downloaded WebRobot's Spy Sweeper and it fixed it on the first try. They are awesome! Now the only thing I can't get rid of is a porn thing that is called website viewer. It is always in 'use' so it won't delete or be cleared out. I HATE THAT THING!!! ahhh!
anyway- hope it helps! :thumbsup:
