Hi

This had been bugging me for a while, so i'll appreciate any help i can get on the matter

when searching on google, clicking a link will often bring up an incorrect website, usually another search site or ebay.

when trying to connect to the windows update service, i am unable to download any updates and get the error code 80244019 (any ideas what that means?)

i have downloaded malwarebytes anit malware and ad-aware, but neither will connect to update.

im running vista 32-bit premium with mcafee virus scan (doesnt turn up anything in a scan)
the problem is in internet explorer 7, tho i havent used firefox in a while so it may be present there too


anyone got a clue what to do?

cheers
chris

ok, mbam has found and deleted something called 'dnschanger', and it appears that my searches will work properly now

windows update is now also updating.

anything i need to do, or do you think this problem is fixed?

cheers
