    BugOff! From Merijn, creator of HiJackTHis, CWShredder, and more.


    QUOTE
    A new app is available for download: BugOff. This disables a few exploits that are commonly used by browser hijackers to install themselves onto your system. In essence, it prevents such hijackers from ever installing, like SpywareBlaster.
    There are no patches available from Microsoft for these exploits. Even if your system is fully up to date from WindowsUpdate you are vulnerable! This app should be used by everyone that uses Internet Explorer to browse the web.




    QUOTE
    Browser hijackers use a variety of methods to trick the user into installing them, but a growing
    part of them uses vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer instead to install completely silent. Since
    some of these exploits have NOT been patched by Microsoft yet, this app provides a
    temporary solution for these vulnerabilities, by disabling the vulnerable Windows components.
