    Hi

    Despite every effort to avoid this type of attack my web browser has been hijacked and my home page is now always this MyWebhunt.com. I have searched the registry with no avail and am stuck as to how to trace and eliminate. Has anyone come across this before o_O

    I am running IE7 in Windows Vista.

    Titus

    Try downloading and installing SAS and MBAMand scanning your computer in safe mode. If that fails, download Avira Rescue CD, burn it to cd and boot into it to do a scan.

    After that switch to either Firefox or Opera.
