Your-home-page.net-virus

Your-home-page.net is a browser hijacker, which is promoted via other free downloads, and once installed it will change the user's browser homepage and default search engine to http://your-home-page.net/

This in itself is not considered malicious as there are many legitimate programs that change these settings as well. What is considered malicious, though, is that it will also append the argument http://your-home-page.net/ to random Windows shortcuts on the user's desktop and Windows Start Menu.
