Posted 23 March 2009 - 10:01 PM

I seem to have a search engine virus that is affecting google/yahoo on all different types of browsers including IE 7. The virus seems to affect the first page of the search engine's search results. For example, if I type in "baseball" in google, I get regular search results, but the green link under the result is a link to things like toseeka.com, stop-sign.com, findlinks.com, shopful.net, etc. If I click on the search result, it takes me to one of those sights, making google pretty much useless. Any help to rid this terrible virus would be greatly appreciated, as I feel like I have tried everything and am still experiencing this awful problem. Its on and off at this point. I'm not the most advanced as far as computers go so an easy explanation and plan of action like your "Preparation Guide for use before posting about your potential Malware problem" would be much appreciated.

Here is my DDS.txt:
