Certain programs change your default search engine. Is there a way to block them?

They change your basic settings, even your home page, without your permission or even without your knowledge. Even if you have the best antivirus programs installed. They show dirty ads. It is very difficult to get rid of them. Most of these are spy software which study your online behavior and send secret reports back to them. In your opinion, as a large community, how we hubbers should react to these anti social elements? One way is to boycott all the products and services displayed. Another is to share a list of web sites from which your PC got infected. Experts, please help.

    Thank you very much Sheilamyers. The idea is to have a common database of these kinds of substandard websites.
