    Hello, All

    I just happen to see this maybe it can help someone

    NEWS: Version 1.2 is an effective cure against more "persistant intruders" like SEXHOUND and MYCPWORLD.

    THE PROGRAM
    StartPage Guard (SPG) protects your PC from cyberscam, by monitoring status of your internet browser StartPage and preventing it from any unauthorized changes.

    BACKGROUND
    Malicious programs (viruses, trojans, backdoors, etc.) sometime change the StartPage to "gain the ground". Spywares use this way to invade user's privacy by tracking destinations which user visited, and collecting personal information. In some cases this activity may be totally transparent to the user. But most often this is just plain annoyance when start page is changed without asking user's permission. SPG effectively deals with all this problems, making surfing the net safer, more secure, and by reducing frustaration - more fun.

    FEATURES
    * ALWAYS remember user-selected StartPage.
    * Alerts if start page has been changed.
    * Detects and reports transparent-redirect attempts.
    * Can automatically revert to user-selected start page without user interaction.
    * Deals with disabled (grayed) set-startpage-address buttons on IE.
    * Simple and user friendly interface.
    * Whole program is a single, small (300+k) file, written in C++.
    * Install / uninstall included.
