i am on a windows xp, and i use IE7. this is not my main computer (it's my parents, i came home to fix it) so i am not sure how long this problem has been occuring. when i use search engines like yahoo or google, i see normal results but when i click on them i get redirected to completely unrelated websites. for example, texasroadhouse.com result turned into adultfriendfinder.com. this happened for almost every search result.
then i came to this site and started looking at posts with the same problem. i particularly followed the advice of this recent thread: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/205129/google-redirecting-to-unwanted-sites/ . i ran malwarebytes, sas, atp cleanup, gooredfix, f-secure, everything. pretty much in the same order as that thread. the person who recieved the advice reported the issue was solved. for me, however, even though i had the same symptoms, the problem is still occuring. after following the advice, i am still being redirected. before i got redirected every single search result, but now it is only about 1 out of 5 (so it did some good). i'm not sure what else to do at this point. right now i am running malwarebytes again on full scan. any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks
