Joseph asks…

How do I get rid of a hijacker that my Yahoo anti-spy detects and when I go to clear it it returns within 5min

I try to run my antispyware and it brings up a hijacker, I click to the remove button so it goes thru the process to delete it. But when I run the anti-spy again the same hijacker program remains there. So what can I do to permanently remove it?

PCTools products do get good reviews. The good thing is they have free versions of their products. They work great. Spyware Doctor from the Google pack is a must. I highly recommend it. I bought Webroots Spysweeper and spyware doctor finds stuff spysweeper does not. Having both is a perfect combo and I recommend running two anti-spyware products.

PCTools Threatfire – Malware Protection

PCTools Firewall Plus

The Google Pack includes a free starter edition of Spyware Doctor.
