DxtFixerX - B1 Archiver Changes Home Page!

Recommended Posts

I downloaded a program called DxtFixerX to add missing alpha filters to textures in FSX. I also got something called the B1 Archiver. Fine, I deleted/uninstalled that since I was happy with my present setup. The DxtFixerX program works ok.

 

However, now my home page on both Internet Explorer and Firefox is being changed to the B1 site. If I change my home page selection to my proper home page it reverts to the B1 site on a re-boot.(http://search.b1.org(http://search.b1.org/?bsrc=ecfor&qq=). Allowing any program to make basic changes to your browser is just plain BAD!

 

I could say how I really feel but Tom might not understand those words and ban me.

I downloaded and ran the same program. I didn't have the same issue - no browser hijacks. In my dxtfixer folder there is nothing called B1 Archiver. My zip file contains three files - dxtfixer.exe, log.txt, readme.txt.

I think it happened early on while I was looking at the relavent forum there was a link to the DXT program. I did not pay any attention to it and used it to get to DXTfixer. Reading on I found that there was an update. Got that and it did not have the B1 thing. It was only on a reboot that I saw the hijack.

 

I agree that the current version of the program is clean and works. Fortunately, Firefox has some simple procedures to deal with home page hijacks and rogue search bars. In a few minites I was back to normal.

 

Once again the fixer programs works without issue.
