hey there :thumbsup:

These seem to be quite popular!

I thought I vanquished this bugger a couple weeks ago. I used to get search results like this:
Normal website link..
Normal website text..
monstermarketplace.com, random search/find it site redirect link.

I ran a few scans and it disappeared, now it has reappeared in the fashion of making the link look fine all around but just redirecting me to the site, for example searching for "jobs" clicking on one of the results and getting one of those "make millions at home" ad sites. In the title bar there is commonly "Jump" with an unwanted website. It is not possible to go back to the original google search. Since it has reappeared I have run SuperAntiSpyware in normal mode, it removed a rootkit TDSSERV-Trace and some tracking cookies. I plan to run superantispyware and malwarebytes in normal and safe mode later on.

Since I've been having the redirect issue again I've had a problem with winamp erroring out whenever I start it. I can play songs with no issue but I have an application error -- "The instruction at '0x10251db5' referenced memory at '0x00000001'. The memory could not be 'read'." if I do nothing with this window it does not affect the stability of the program. I may just have to update winamp but I honestly have no idea what this error means whatsoever!

I'm pretty worried that this is linked to the redirect issue and it will evolve into something else or that that's something else completely different. I have no idea how I got this in the first place since this is primarily a gaming computer and I visit VERY few websites, definitely nothing too dodgy.

thanks for any help!
