Hey guys, a little while ago I somehow got a trojan and now everytime I do a search on Yahoo! or Google I get taken to a random ad site. I am afraid I will get information stolen and everything. So far I have literally tried 12 programs (seperately of course) and none of them removed it. On two occasions my internet stopped working after the virus is removed and when I restore the system it is back. I'm not sure what the trojan is called. I am about to post a HijackThis, but I want to know if there is any possible solution right now.

Thanks,

Shadow

Hello, Do you have a name for this malware to give us?
Have you run Malwarebytes or Superantispyware? If so post those scan logs for review?
Are you using XP or another?
What is you Antivirus?
Thanks...

I'm actually not sure what the name of the virus is. Everytime a scanner has found something and deleted it, the problem still persists.
So far the programs I tried were:
Trojan Hunter
Norton Anti-Virus
Trend Micro Antivirus
AVG
Avast!
Trojan Remover
Live One Care
Ad-Aware
Malwarebytes
Spybot: Search and Destroy
Superantispyware
and antivir.

Malwarebtes and Superantispyware might have done the trick, but when i restarted my comp my internet connection cut out and I did not know how to fix it. So i had to restore system and the virus came back.
