The problem only occurs when I type a search item in "Yahoo's Web Search" Tab. Yahoo is my home web page. I can do the same seach in "google" and have no problem. When searching in the yahoo tab it has no problem until it list the results of the search. Then once you click on a specific web site from the "Yahoo Search Results" it wants to redirect you to another web site such "fast click" or "ad10" or various other sites its switches to different ones all of the time (some are even porn sites). I think for the most part I have eliminated most porn sites by removing all my cookies and temp files but the necessary ones i use. I have run "adaware", "AVG" and "spybot" and it has detected nothing. You can work around the problem by clicking the back button and try it again sometimes you can get to the appropriate web site though yahoo and other times you can't, then i'll just find what i'm looking for on Google. Attached is my Hijack this log I've looked at my URL section in my registry and found nothing abnormal and have tried various other "registry" searches with no luck. Any assistance to fix this problem would be appreciated, thank you.
