OK, this is the first time I have found a rogue security program that I could not get rid of. Spyware Wizard as hijacked the MSN home page only (MSN software). It has not affected Internet Explorer which is odd. The following programs were unable to 'see' it: CounterSpy, Spyware Doctor, Panda, AdAware, SuperAntiSpyware, AVG. The MSN home page is re-directed to "theta-main.hosting" and "zeta-main.hosting", which then pulls up the Spyware Wizard home page. There is NO code 10, R0, R1 on HijackThis regarding a hijacker or re-director. There are NO suspicious codes 02 or 03 either. Along with my own knowledge I even ran it through the .de analyzer website which found no problems to speak of. I have uninstalled MSN and reinstalled to find it still there. Any ideas?
