Have been having problems with IE7. When using a search engine to search for something i.e. Google, I get the usual list of possible sites relevant to my search criteria. When I click on any of these, however, I get randomly redirected to a number of different sites rather than to the site of interest. Often re-direction goes via www.fresh-weather.com. I found a post on microsoft.com/communities by someone who had a similar problem. The response was to download and run the latest Malicious Software Removal Tool (done), use OneCare Safety Scanner (Done) and to download HiJack This and post the results on this site...hence I am here. The result is listed below.

Any help will be gladly received.

Welcome to the BleepingComputer HijackThis Logs and Analysis forum itidiot :thumbsup:
My name is Richie and i'll be helping you to fix your problems.

Download and run Fixwareout from the link below:
After the reboot post the contents of the logfile C:\fixwareout\report.txt in your next reply.

Download Combofix and save to your desktop:
It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop

Close any open browsers.
Double click on combofix.exe and follow the prompts.
When it's finished it will produce a log.
Post the entire contents of C:\ComboFix.txt into your next reply.
Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running.
That may cause the program to freeze/hang.

Do NOT post the ComboFix-quarantined-files.txt unless I ask.

Also post a new Hijackthis log.
