    Thanks for this post! I have spent the past few days unable to figure this out. What is the deal with navexcel? That was the page I was being directed to when I entered a search page. I have removed navexcel.

    Can you CNTL+ENTER to add www and .com in the IE address bar now? I cannot? I thought that that was a defalut shortcut.

    Also I will Add that Merijn has developed a beta version of HijackThis which is designed to detect and correct this. It is stable and will soon be released.
    Get it here: http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/files/beta/hijackthis.zip

    It will report the misplaced hosts file, show it's contents, and restore the normal hosts location.

    My brother-in-law's computer was hit by this domain hijacking virus. I was able to remove the hosts folder and the problem seems to be solved.
