I'm a new subscriber to the site and I wanted to share my experience. Recently, my browser (IE6) was hijacked by a Chinese URL (www.tongxunqicai.cn) which took over my home page. All of my usual efforts to eliminate the problem were unsuccessful. I googled 'eliminate browser hijacks' and found your web site and utilized some of your suggestions, specifically: 1) Ran 'cleanmgr' at the command prompt to eliminate all temporary files, 2) ran Ad-Aware in full scan mode, and 3) ran Spybot-Search & Destroy, and 4) cleared the home page URL in IE6 (under Internet Tools). Rebooted and voila - renegade URL was gone. Reset my home page in IE6 and everything looks OK. Thanks for the help!
