OK! When I, FOR EXAMPLE, try doing a google search I get a bunch of Highly ad "infected" websites (couponmountain.com, info.com...ect). It also blocks my browser from finding results for anti-virus software I cannot seem to get a valid search to work. I was reading on this site and there was one other guy that had the exact same problem that I have ( http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/187837/stealthy-browser-hijack-redirects-google-results-to-couponmountain-etc-blocks-anti-virus-searches-aggravating/ ). I'm not sure if he got it fixed or not. PLEASE if anyone knows how to fix this I'd greatly appreciate it. I have ran EVERY FREE Virus AND Malware/Spyware scan known to man with NO results. Whatever is causing this only seems to affect Search engines. I don't see any slow down in my computer but sense I use GOOGLE search EVERYDAY for my home business I am at a loss. :thumbsup: But anyways, I will attach the required DDS files in hopes that someone knows what I should do to fix this.

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Bleeping Computer we get overwhelmed at times, and we are trying our best to keep up. Please note that your topic was not intentionally overlooked. Our mission is to help everyone in need, but sometimes it takes just a little longer to get to every request for help.

If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know. If not please perform the following steps below so we can have a look at the current condition of your machine. If you have not done so, include a description of your problem, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

Upon completing the steps below a staff member will review and take the steps necessary with you to get your machine back in working order clean and free of malware.

Thanks and again sorry for the delay.

We need to see some information about what is happening in your machine. Please perform the following scan:
  • Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
  • A small box will open, with an explaination about the tool. No input is needed, the scan is running.
  • Notepad will open with the results, click no to the Optional_Scan
  • Follow the instructions that pop up for posting the results.
  • Close the program window, and delete the program from your desktop.
Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run. After downloading the tool, disconnect from the internet and disable all antivirus protection. Run the scan, enable your A/V and reconnect to the internet. Information on A/V control HERE

This may seem repetitive, but we need to see the current status of your system.
Please Hold on it may take us a day or so to get back with you.

The only easy day was yesterday.
