There is nothing more annoying than having your home page continually hijacked. There are a number of malware applications that attempt to change your browserÂ’s home page to point to a page of their choice. The 2005 version of the Maintenance Checkup Home Edition (MCHE) did not have a mechanism for protecting your Internet Explorer browser from a home page hijack.

The all-new version to of the MCHE protects your browserÂ’s home page and search page to ensure that they point exactly where you want them to, all the time.

The MCHE does this by monitoring the registry keys within Windows where the home and search pages are stored. Rather than checking them from time to time, the MCHE is alerted the instant another person or program attempts to change these registry values, and can alert you and ask for your input.
While protecting your home and search pages is not a high-level security priority, the MCHE can certainly save you a lot of time and headaches. That is a win in our book!

Check back tomorrow to learn about how the faster, more accurate MCHE scanning engine locates malware files and eliminates them from your computer!
