well it seems that im having some kind of Google hijacking going on here, im not really sure how i let this happen because for the most part i try and be real careful on what i download and i always make sure that i keep my anti-virus program up to date. There are 2 actual problems, the first is the Google link re-directing, this is when i perform a search on Google and when i click one of their links it basically redirects me elsewhere randomly. The second thing i have noticed is im unable to do a system restore or a windows update. Hopefully this explains what is going on here and maybe someone could point me in the right direction here. For the most part everything else with my PC seems to be going good, except for the very slow start-up times but i guess i can live with that. Anyways, having reading the preperation guide on here i will try and follow the rules on what to do here but please forgive me if i screw up as im not computer savvy as some..LOL

anyways, here is my DDS log:

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Bleeping Computer we get overwhelmed at times, and we are trying our best to keep up. Please note that your topic was not intentionally overlooked. Our mission is to help everyone in need, but sometimes it takes just a little longer to get to every request for help.

If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know. If not please perform the following steps below so we can have a look at the current condition of your machine.

If you have not done so, include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

Upon completing the steps below another staff member will review and take the steps necessary with you to get your machine back in working order clean and free of malware.

If you have already posted a DDS log, please do so again, as your situation may have changed.
Use the 'Add Reply' and add the new log to this thread.

Thanks and again sorry for the delay.

We need to see some information about what is happening in your machine. Please perform the following scan:
  • Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
  • A small box will open, with an explaination about the tool. No input is needed, the scan is running.
  • Notepad will open with the results.
  • Follow the instructions that pop up for posting the results.
  • Close the program window, and delete the program from your desktop.
Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run. After downloading the tool, disconnect from the internet and disable all antivirus protection. Run the scan, enable your A/V and reconnect to the internet.
