Example when using www.google.com:
I type in google help desk - This leads to a temporary link: <hxxp://getsearch0330.com/?q=google help desk>
After which I am redirected to Greenpoweredsearch: showing various hits concerning help desk related software.
Other websites seem to work normally, and offline everything appears normal as well. The only other thing I notice besides the odd search engine results is a frequent error popping up every now and then:
Even when not on the internet my browser (Internet Explorer 7) opens automatically, giving HTTP 404 errors. This happens both with the browser open and closed, and without any attempt to actually type a website in the browser.
I tried running Spybot Search and Destroy, which found loads of cookies, and a few Trojans - these were removed - and now nothing is found
Norton 360 - found a Trojan, which was removed and gives the all clear as well
I also did Avast Boot check. Here 5 different infected files were found. I tried to repair these, but ended up having to delete them. After restarting the pc, the problem is still there.
Rigth now I am stumped as to what the problem could be?
I would really appreciate any help you could provide me - especially with making sure that my pc really is clean. If more info is needed, then please let me know.
