    When I try to use Yahoo search, I'm directed to a website from TweakXP.com, that explains that someone has hijacked the windows host files. It won't let me search with Yahoo. The site explains how to fix the problem, but I'm not sure I can trust them, because what if the hijackers wrote that, and want to destroy my computer?!
    Has anyone else experienced this? Any tips?

    TweakXP is a reputable site. I actually post at their board myself.
    If they give directions on how to fix it, don't be afraid to follow them.
