:thumbsup: I am running Netscape 6.2.2. I am being hijacked from certain news sites to Monster.com. My hijacker only hijacks NETSCAPE!! This seems to be unusual. Anybody else have NETSCAPE only HIJACKERS?

I downloaded and paid for XOFTSPY which has yet to fix the problem. XOFTSPY was working with me but I have not heard from them in three days. Per XOFTSPY instructions, I ran Killbox and HIJACKTHIS. I sent them my HIJACKTHIS log and I am waiting for a response. Using Killbox I was to kill ptf_0006.exe but Killbox did not find the exe. I did a find and there is no ptf_0006.exe on my computer.

Since getting the hijacker and/or running XOFTSPY, both NETSCAPE and IE are slightly misbehaving. I will address these issues once I get rid of my hijacker.
I have downloaded SPYBOT. I intend to wait another day for XOFTSPY to respond before installing SPYBOT.
