I am a total newbie, so please bear with me. I had seen your page before and read the "read this FAQ page". I saved the link http://www.spywarein...icles/hijacked/ along with the link http://www.spywarein...ked/prevent.php in my favorites. I have tried to surf to these pages and am unable. I have also tried to go back and surf directly from your site and am still unable. If I am right, by reading some of the forum posts, it seems as if you are having problems with the server. Is this the reason for the loss of the pages? Is there any way that I can get those articles or a link that will actually bring me to them? Should I just wait until you have settled things down and maybe the links will work again? Thank you so much for all that you guys do and for any response that you may give me.

That's because the site is currently down caused by the DDoS attacks (Distributed Denial of Service )

Just keep trying those links - I got thru just now on both of them.

Another good read about preventing hijacks is Tony Klein's: So how did I get infected in the first place?.

Also check out the (somewhat long) article at Bleeping Computer : Understanding Spyware, Browser Hijackers, and Dialers. It also has a section on prevention down near the bottom.
