Hello. I am having a problem with my internet search engine (example: google.com) redirecting. If I do a search on anything, and try to click on the link, it redirects to a lycos search site or ebay search; something like that, But not the correct site. Please help!

check your browser addons under tools.
Run a scan with Super Antispyware. Let us know what it found and removed.

Install Super Antispyware free. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Hello. I downloaded the Super Anti Spyware and it removed lots of things:
Adware.trackingcookie
Adware.VundoVariant
Adware.WhenU
Malware.Drive Cleaner
Rogue.WinPerformance
Trojan.Conhook
Trojan.downloader/dialer-livecall
trojan.downloader/-gen/LIB
trojan.downloader/-gen/mobrules
trojan.media-codec/v4

Everything seems to be working fine as of now. Do you need me to do anything else??

Thank you so much for all your help!!

That is some collection of malware.
Permanently remove all the quarantined files in ALL the security programs installed on your computer including Super Antispyware.
Remove temporary files, logs, cookies, etc. by using Ccleaner. Do not use "Advanced Settings" or the "Issues" button. Use only the default settings.
During installation you will be offered the Yahoo toolbar. Uncheck if you do NOT want it. http://www.ccleaner.com/
Delete the restore points in system restore as some or all are infected. Directions on how to do that are in the link below if you need them.

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds. Only works in Internet Explorer Browser.

Please let us know the results of the Bit Defender scan.
