I am having a similar problem as this fellow in the link below.
Initially my problem was with some malware going by title "Virus Response Lab 2009". I used Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware program to get rid of most the trouble. Unfortunately I still have a redirection to "Windiwsfsearch.com" anytime I use firefox or internet explorers search bar function. Thanks for any help you may possibly have.

It has come to my attention that you have posted for help with your computer at other forums.

Here are your other topic(s): Link(s) here.


http://forums.techguy.org/malware-removal-...search-com.html << where you are recieving help

Although we understand you wish your problems to be addressed as soon as possible, there are reasons why multi-posting causes problems.

* By Multi Posting you are utilising the time of two (or more) trained helpers.

Helpers take a long time to train. They need a great deal of expertise and knowledge to be able to safely remove Malware from your computer and because of this are in short supply. We wish to use them to help the maximum number of people, and if they are researching the log of someone who is already being helped, then their time and effort is going to waste.

Understandably this causes a certain amount of bad feeling.

o From the helper who has needlessly spent time researching your log and compiling and posting instructions.
o From others who have to wait longer for their problems to be addressed.

* Advice from two seperate helpers can cause problems.

Different helpers may use different methods to combat your infection. Whilst each in isolation is safe, that may not be so if you follow the advice of both together. Some of the tools we use are very powerful and have to be used in a specific way and in some cases do not combine well with others. By using advice from two different sources it is possible that tools may be used that do not combine well and you may severely damage your computer, even rendering it inoperable in some circumstances.
