    :?

    Are you sure?
    I don't think "Hijack This" will stop them. Is that not just a program so that you can get a log to see what is on your pc etc?

    no i have it on mine

    its like windows defender just runs in the background

    Didn't know that. I always thought it was just for generating log files etc. :thumbsup:

    ok il explain

    it runs like defender ..it does a scan and tells you where the hijack is (norm the reg) and tells you the name of the hijacker so you can google the name and find a removal tool

    but if you fire wall is on and you security is upto date you should notget the problem anyways

    other tools to try include cwshredder, spybot search and destroy and adaware. Some tools don't pick up everything so often worth running more than one. Good luck! Bfm
