Re: Help, my browser has been hijacked!

    run a freeware called
    "hijack this".

    the log it produces will
    likely show those references
    you mentioned usually at the
    very top of the list.

    simply check them off and
    click on fix.

    perhaps, you're right.

    but the o.p. has the right
    to know about the utility
    and has the right to use
    it,

    regardless of the adverse
    opinions people may have
    about the o.p.

    OPs post indicate being unexperienced.
    Giving advices closing the eyes is no help
    and is kind of adverse.
    If you're a professional and want to help.
    Then you should post a result of using
    Carlos advice.

    if all of you want to insult
    people like the o.p.'s

    then don't hijack my
    thread to do so.

    bunch of morons who
    can't create their own
    threads to spread infectious
    comments

    are no better themselves.

    just shut up.

    you're an arrogant s.o.b.
    anyways.

    also, since you presume
    to be highly knowledgeable

    then use your smart ass
    and create your own threads
    instead of hijacking others.

    the only expectation you
    should have is to be treated
    as you treat others.

    simply tell the o.p. what
    you think about him/her
    via direct reply instead of
    burying your comments
    in other peoples sub
    threads.

    however, we all know your
    a newsgroup hypocrites don't
    have that propensity to do
    so.

    really, if your proud of
    being a snob, then raise
    it your crooked nose high

    instead of picking it and
    flinging your snot at people.
