I need some help fixing a computer problem I seem to be having. The problem is best described by saying that whenever I search using google or a similar search engine, and I select one of the links that come up in the search results, I get redirected to a random advertisement page. I have attempted to scan for any viruses but have had little success. I am attaching a HJT log, please help.

Hi there :thumbup2:

Getting these redirects in IE, Firefox, both?

Please download DDS and save it to your desktop.
  • Disable any script blocking protection
  • Double click dds.scr to run the tool.
  • When done two logs should open:
  • DDS.txt
  • Attach.txt
  • Save both reports to your desktop.
---------------------------------------------------
  • Post the contents of the DDS.txt report in your next reply
  • Attach the Attach.txt report to your post by scrolling down to the Attachments area and then clicking Browse. Browse to where you saved the file, and click Open and then click UPLOAD.
Thanks.
