If you can use a browser like firefox and enable the status bar at the bottom, it will show give you a read out of what is being transferred to and from the browser.

so for example, you enter a url like www.msn.com but see in the status bar other websites that are not www.msn.com, then it implies your browser has been hijacked.

although a freeware called hijackthis is helpful, it is not always proficient in eliminating the rogue hijack. meaning that there are cookies and temp files linked to the hijack that are also interfering with the browser.
