    It appears to be fairly new. See the thread below (mainly just to show a recent occurrence of this hijack and that SpywareBlaster does block it):

    The overall recommendation to prevent other hijacks similar to this one is to tighten the security in your browser. IE users are encouraged to tighten the security settings in the Internet zone and then use the Trusted zone's site list to allow normal functionality at sites that can be trusted. (There's more on how to do this in the threads linked within the topic referenced above.)
