Browser hijackers

Browser hijackers are malicious programs that modify the default start and search pages of web browsers without explicit permission. They can add internet shortcuts to "favorites" folder without asking a user. In some cases, these changes are reversible simply by going into internet options and switching them back, but sometimes it's necessary to edit the windows registry to undo the changes made. Browser hijackers can even store some program modules on the hard drive that modify the browser settings every time the computer is restarted.
