    Thumbs up THE must have tool !

    Has your start page ever been hijacked, you change it back again, but on the next reboot it has magically changed to the hijacked page again (mostly porn !!!).

    I have found a great tool that allows you to delete all traces of such pages and software form your system, with the click of a button !!

    Try it out and tell me wat u all think - a must have for any internet user !

    [spam for freeware] Adaware and SpyBot Search and Destroy will also fix this problem. [/spam for freeware]
    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

    re: Hijack Ths.

    Can anyone confirm the integrity of this software??
    Its a good idea in theory but like er0k im a paranoid cynical type.

    Tom Coyote - who is he? And the Spyware Info Forums?? Who?


    Any AO users a member of this forum. Is it safe?


    Extreme, you coulda given us a bit more info in that last post mate. Did seem a bit spammy.

    Cheers

    A quick search on Google brought up the following sites (which have some type of review about the program):

    http://www.webattack.com/get/hijackthis.shtml
    http://www.spychecker.com/program/hijackthis.html

    I don't know if I'd call it the "MUST have tool" (no tool I know is that ... well, maybe your grey cells but that's it) but it certainly seems to be decent. A windump/tcpdump would be good to see if it's doing anything other than removing unnecessary files.

    you know damn well that what i meant by spamming was the way he/she made it sound like it was like this:

    "Woah try this program out, and tell me what you think, its great blah blah i think you should use it.."

    and to start a thread entirely like that

    instead of when someone was asking for help fixing a problem, saying "O well this might help fix the problem"

    Thats why it sounded like spam. and if its not, it still came off that way.
