Have I missed the beginning of this thread? I too have had my browser hijacked and have NAV already and have made use of Spybot to no avail. Any advice would be welcome.

Doesn't remove the underlying problem. Worth cleaning with Spybot, Adaware, The Cleaner, Pest Patrol, Coolwebshredder and any other guardian angels... also spyware blaster click here is worth installing when you have a clean system. Stops a multitude of sins installing in the first place.
