Internet Explorer Home page hijacked

  laticsfan 11:23 21 Sep 2003

Whilst searching the web my home address has been hijacked.
My default home page is NTL World .com but the address http// has been added.Even if i delete it from Internet options it is automatically re entered. Also a toolbar has been added to IE (Igratregthq) Again I can find no way of deleting it permanently. Do I need to edit the registry to solve this problem.If so what is the safest method of doing so.

Download Spybot S&D click here and do a scan then install Startpage Guard to stop it happening again.

You might want to instal SpywareBlaster to stop any spyware getting in your machine click here

I hope you have up to date antivirus and a firewall installed as well
