Two options, as I see it:

a) Keelhaul myself in recrimination for not having been more careful to avoid contracting the dreaded "hijacked browser" disease!
:thumbsup: Admit immediate wretched defeat in pursuing the notion that I'll just Google the answer and plod my way though this insufferable dilemma on my own!

Even a single-handed sailor may need to broadcast a MAYDAY!!! once in a while, grateful that there is a community such as this out there willing to throw a life-ring.

Thanks, John. It's those deadheads not on the charts that scare me.

So far have installed Ad-Aware, Spywareblaster, Spybot S&D and Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. Cannot open Spybot in either normal or safe modes, whether as Administrator or not, nor with mouse detached and using the cursor pad through Program Files. Can update until the cows come home; nothing else.

This response done in Safe Mode.

Any course you can suggest?
