I remember reading a short while back about a hijack that was triggered by spelling Google wrong by putting a letter 'k' between the 'g' and 'l' when typing Google into a search box. I am having a little trouble locating it as I don't want to get caught out the same way.

You should download, install, update and run Adaware SE click here

Spybot Search and Destroy click here

and SpywareBlaster click here this will sit in the background and should prevent any nasties entering your PC.

I would also recommend Ewido click here it is supposed to be a thirty day tial but I hve been using and updating it for much longer than that without any restrictions or loss of functions and appears to be able to get rid of all nasties better than either AdAware and SpyBot separately, in fact I don't need to run AdAware or SpyBot if I use Ewido first.

Both Adaware and SpyBot are tried and tested and have proved their worth to many forum users in the past and are highly recommended by many, Ewido is relatively new but it is easily as good.

You MUST UPDATE them all before use.

Not sure if this click here will cure your problem but it will stop your start page being hijacked in future.
