  bootconf.exe

Name bootconf.exe

Description

This is absolutely useless application.
It's also named IE Homepage hphijacker.
What it does:
It writes to C:\WINDOWS\HOSTS
this is changes msn.search to its IP
Delete this record from c:\windows\hosts:
1123694712 auto.search.msn.com
It creates c:\windows\defaults.css (style sheet) that contains IP.
Registry changes:
Registry key HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search
Changed: Search, SearchAssistant, Search Page, Default_Search_URL etc.

By default (on my computer) the Search key contains two values:
CustomizeSearch="http://ie.search.msn.com/{SUB_RFC1766}/s...
SearchAssistant="http://www.searchgateway.net/search/"

Other values you may remove.

Remove it by antivirus (also check How To Remove section)Startup Optimizer.
Set the default setting for IE by opening Control Panel, Internet
Settings.
