I am a regular member of another forum on the net but I took an interest in this one also.

In the recent past there seems to be a wild increase in browser hijacks. Hijack This is a wonderful tool for removal of the malware but what do we do once we have the system cleaned out?

Simple, download and install SpywareGuard and allow it to run in the background. Here is how it works.

When a browser hijacker tries to hijack your browser you will get a box such as the one below.

At this point you will have two options, restore the old value or keep the new value. 99.9% of the time you will want to keep the old value. The other 00.1% of the time that you will want to keep the new value is if you yourself change browser say from msn to google.

Very simple program. Since I have installed it on my system I have had no problems with hijacks. The warning has come up for a change made but it was just one simple click.

Here is the link to the site.....Enjoy
