Articles HijackThis
Pros
  • Clear and easy to use
  • Backs up and logs everything
  • Information on each element
  • Contains extra tools
Cons
  • Pretty ugly
  • Easy to delete necessary elements

A general homepage hijackers detector and remover. 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. It 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.
