    Kent: Thank You, for the website, but these are only attempts to Hijack my browser, i have my home page locked in and attempts are made but never finalize! I still have my Home Page in tact! But i wanted to know is, who is this that is trying to Hijack me, it seems like the same website, do you agree?

    You probably already have the hijacker on your system and it is trying to hijack your homepage. The only way to know for sure is to follow the instructions in the link I posted.

    Hope this helps....

    Regards,
    Kent
