    "This program keeps your homepage from being changed."

    December 23, 2009  |   By Gerald Boyette

    Version: Browser Hijack Retaliator 4.5 build 471

    Pros

    Small footprint, works well and no slowdown. Highly recommend it. It has worked for me many times, saving me the hassle of changing my homepage back to the one I prefer. One click and the change attempt is thwarted. Very nice.

    Cons

    None after many months of use.

    "Protects your home page and more."

    January 1, 2008  |   By Zane77

    Version: Browser Hijack Retaliator 4.5 build 471

    Pros

    Browser Hijack Retaliator supports IE6, IE7, Avant and other IE favorite browsers. It protects IE pages when windows starts up. Click on IE pages and it will protect your current home page from being hijacked. You can also protect another browser, by typing the URL address and click start protection.

    On favorites it will show a popup window notifying you when new favorites are added, and you have the option to allow or remove the new favorite. It protects browser helper objects and hosts file local host. It shows all startup programs, some services that start when windows starts. On IE Plus selected cookies and all recently typed URLs can be deleted. It shows all IE toolbars, browser extentions, and emergency repair. Has options to activate automatic retaliation, or run BHR when windows starts, and has a browser restore function.

    Cons

    Would be better if Browser Hijack Retaliator could support more browsers.

    "Great program."

    October 31, 2007  |   By cgoodloe

    Version: Browser Hijack Retaliator 4.5 build 471

    Pros

    This program is great! My browser no longer redirects to garbage pages.

    Cons

    The only problem I have with the software is that it doesn't remove the hijacker. If this program isn't running, the hijacker still redirects pages. I have no clue where this hijacker is hiding on my computer as no scanner has picked it up yet. Surely someone can make a hijack thwarter that actually removes the hijacker and/or tells you where it's located so you can manually remove it?
