On my wife's computer, when searching from google or yahoo, all of the links are redirected. First through this IP address: 126.96.36.199, then to one of various pages, like toseeka.com, aicse.com, searchexplorer.com, etc.
She's running XP SP3 and this happens in both IE (version 7.0.5730.11) and FF (version 3.0.5).
There, unfortunately, wasn't any antivirus running at the time. I have since installed AVG Free 8.0.233 (virus db version 270.10.6/1894), but haven't been able to connect to the update site to get the most recent version. I ran it with this version, but it didn't come up with anything.
I have tried installing Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (renamed it to get it to install & run), but I get 2 messages saying "Run-time error '0'" and "Run-time error '440': Automation error".
I also tried to install Superantispyware, but got "SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition has encountered a problem and needs to close..."
So, that's where I am now. Any help would be appreciated.
