This is absolutely useless application.
It's also named IE Homepage hphijacker.
What it does:
It writes to C:\WINDOWS\HOSTS
this is changes msn.search to its IP

By default (on my computer) the Search key contains two values:
CustomizeSearch="http://ie.search.msn.com/{SUB_RFC1766}/s...
SearchAssistant="http://www.searchgateway.net/search/"

Other values you may remove.

Remove it by RegRun Startup Optimizer.
Set the default setting for IE by opening Control Panel, Internet
Settings.

Jeff's Story:

My PC had gotten a bad rootkit that my ISP antivirus software (powered by McAfee) could not detect, nor could fix.

I sought a solution on the Internet and discovered your product and tried out the trial of UnHackMe.

You quickly found the rootkit and SAVED my PC!

I haven't had any problems since, and I'm extremely grateful.
