Last night I opened up Safari to find a colorful homepage called MySite. Next to the search box is text, 'enhanced by Google'.  I immediately shut down my computer.  I am sure this is malicious malware, my first in the four years of Mac ownership. What do I do now?


iMac (20-inch Mid 2007), Mac OS X (10.7.3), Safari

PS) I opened up launch pad and sure enough , two icons appear that I do not recognize. BackupStatusItem.app and DriveMapReconnect.app

My mistake. The hijacker is my start. I have deleted all downloads and emptied the trash. All my software is up to date .  Now what?
