Question Browser Hijack Fix?

Hey guys, I ran into another Browser Hijacking problem. It's only on facebook. Last night for about 10 min it kept taking me to MySpace when I was trying to go to facebook...then all of a sudden it let me back on facebook. Really weird...

Anyone got any Browser Hijack Fixing scanners?

I already have Spy Bot and Malwarebytes.


Thanks.

I think Spy Bot may of done the trick because it found a browser cookie type based thing it said something along the lines of "evanlindman@********" I can't remember the last part.

(((PS: Would certain torrents have anything to do with this?)))

I just identify the browser plugin and remove it.

Worked fine on two of my friends' computers.

I've heard that any CS4 Cracks, or keygens have had this problem for a few months now.

Look through the list of installed plugins in your browser and delete anything suspicious.
