Posted 22 August 2007 - 04:38 PM

I did all of the steps that are recommended prior to posting and that helped somewhat. There are still problems though. I am having a problem where when I search for anything using Google, Internet Explorer redirects me to another site when I click on any of the results. In order to get to the link I want I have to click back and then click on the link again. Please help.

Here's the log file.

Hello gamble8524,

Open HijackThis
Go to 'config'
Go to 'misc tools'
Press the button 'open uninstall manager'
Press 'save list'
A notepad file will open.
Post the content here in your reply.
Close HijackThis.

NOTE: If you have downloaded ComboFix previously please delete that version and download it again!

1. Download this file - combofix.exe to your Desktop.
It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop

2. Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
3. When finished, it shall produce a log for you, C:\ComboFix.txt. Post the ComboFix log, the uninstall manager listing and a fresh Hijackthis log in your next reply.
Do NOT post the ComboFix-quarantined-files.txt - unless I ask you to.

Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall
If I've saved you time & money,
