When I use Firefox and IE, it seems like every other time I click on a link the browser goes to some other page instead.

I ran AdAware, Spybot, and McAfee Enterprise and am not coming up with anything.

I tried starting Firefox in Safe Mode and reset everything except bookmarks but the issue is still occurring.

I don't see anything obvious in the Hijack This results but I am posting them anyway in case anyone can spot anything.

Thanks!

I originally posted RSIT logs here but I am removing them because they didn't contain any information related to the trojan I had.

These symptoms are exactly what is happening to me:

I am getting google redirects, and most of the systray icons don't come up, and if I try to run some programs like regedit.exe Explorer crashes.

By following the instructions here:

I was able to determine that this was the culprit, and used the same instructions provided by miekiemoes to MattR to remove it.

Key Name: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Drivers32

Value 42
Name: aux2
Type: REG_SZ
Data: C:\WINDOWS\system32\..\kim.gjq
