Free Download HijackThis 2.0.4 - 1.34MB (Freeware)

A cleanup utility that helps you find and fix unwanted computer settings.

Initially based on the article Hijacked!, but expanded with almost a dozen other checks against hijacker tricks. It is continually updated to detect and remove new hijacks.

HijackThis does not target specific programs/URLs, just the methods used by hijackers to force you onto their sites.

As a result, false positives are imminent and unless you are sure what you're doing, you should always consult with knowledgable folks (e.g. the forums) before deleting anything.
