I seem to have been infected with a hijacker called 'Searchmaid'. (I have Windows XP Home). I can't get rid of it with AVG, Spybot, Adaware of AVG. I turned off System Restore and manually deleted the entries in the registry but it keeps reappearing and re-setting my browser settings and flashing up ads. for spyware destroyers and so on. How can i get rid of this pest please?

Try Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool.

Also, install & carry out a full scan with MS Win AntiSpyware (Beta 1). Leave this installed, it runs in background and prevents changes to brouser.

I know a number of friends who have had success with removing various hijackers with both those programmes.

Thanks very much romanab and fsbb. The MS AntiSpyware (Beta 1) worked for me. Very grateful.
