Yesterday, I noticed a problem with my XP desktop which basically kept redirecting any google search results to clearask.com. I first suspected some kind of virus and tried installing Norton 360 on the computer. But after installation, Norton did a scan and didn't find anything. After this, I did a websearch and stumbled upon this site. I saw instructions to download and run ComboFix (some people had reported seeing a similar problem that ComboFix fixed) and followed the instructions. ComboFix completed all stages and generated the log file. I am attaching the log file at the bottom.
After this, I rebooted the computer. My borwsers now can't connect to the internet. However, if I open a cmd window and ping www.yahoo.com, it seems to ping fine.
Any help on how I can connect to the internet again is highly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
