Ad-aware and Spybot missed a hijacker.

  velodrome 17:21 01 Jul 2003

Despite having Spybot and Ad-aware installed and up to date, my homepage was hijacked by http:/ I changed my homepage back to the usual one manually, and then ran the 2 programmes. They indicate that there is nothing amiss on my system. Anyone have any ideas please.

Go to click here and download Hijackthis! this will enable you to hae more control over this type of thing, once cleaned spybot has an option to allow you to lock your homepage.

SpywareGuard has hijacker

Thanks for the help guys. What worries me is that there is a pest on my machine that the anti- spyware programmes can't find or remove. Is it because this is a new bug that has not yet been picked up by the spyware people, or what. Thanks again for the help.
