First, I will be cross-posting this message in all OS areas because I beleive it can happen in any OS.

Running 98SE on an old laptop as a 4th pc in the house. Somewhere along the line my browser IE was hi-jacked. My homepage has been changed to http://search-dot.com/net/. If I change it back to my comcast homepage it stays there only untill I reboot. If I do a search from the Google Toolbar I get http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navclient&q={search text} at maximumsearch.net, not Google. I have run Spy-Bot, AdAware, NAV, RegCleanerPro, removed and installed Google, and checked running processes and services. No luck fixing this. Some keywords may be - search with us!, search-dot, and, maximum search. ANY IDEAS ?

For it is not what is seen, but what is not seen. :eek:

Their is a program called hijacked that unhijacks your browser. Maybe I saw it at download.com

Thanks all. Got it. Ran Spy-Bot again after updating. It found 9 hijack entries. My homepage and all search sites were redirected to the same search-dot IP address. Spy-Bot made the repairs.
Everything is good again.
