The "tips" you have posted have nothing whatsoever to do with browser hijacking.

Page 1: clearing the page file on shutdown achieves absolutely nothing apart from taking all night to shut down the system.

Page 2: Number 3 doesn't acually solve anything because you're not changing anything. As for number 4, 99% of program incuding Malware and what not actually ask Windows which folder it lives in befor dumping payloas and what not, so this suggestion is cumbersome. What number 5 has to do with browser hijacking I do not know.

Page 3: Number 7 can be summed up in two words: Spyware Blaster.

The page you linked to is horribly put together though.

about 90% of the page is filled with ads as well. I wouldn't trust it at all.
