Default Hijacked Web Browser

Please Login to Remove!

I don't know how, but my web browser appears to have been hijacked. When I open the browser, it jumps immediately to this web site (don't worry, it's not an adult web site). If I jump to ESPN, Google, etc., after two minutes, it jumps back to the hijack site. Is there Blackberry Internet Browser software equivalent to "HiJackThis?"

There is no HijackThis for Blackberry, but try this:

Open the browser, click the trackwheel and click Options. Click Browser configuration, scroll down to the Home Page Address and enter the URL of the site you want. Click the trackwheel and then Save Options.
