    I use MSN as a homepage. I run Spywareblaster and update it faithfully. Lately, I have noticed that when I click on a link to viewsome MSN related topic, an ad for "Astra-Zeneca" pops up promoting "Crestor", instead of the link I clicked--today it was a NASA link. Something Spywareblaster is not preventing--what could this be?

    Thank you subratam. I didn't have HijackThis installed--I do now and will use it. As soon as I find out the source on this I will take some action, as it has returned frequently to my computer after removal. I figure spywareblaster does not protect against it--whatever it is. I am sure Microsoft will be happy to find out their links are being hijacked when I tell them too. I will be back.
