I appear to have a browser hijacker that is not showing up on any scans. When I run a Google search, the site cl-searc.com is occasionally contacted. Then, when I click on the search results I am sometimes redirected to sites such as toseeka.com, shopica.com, bizrate.com, and even pctools. There doesn't appear to be a pattern to when I get redirected, but the redirects themselves often seem connected to the search phrase I originally entered.
So a search for a certain Kodak camera model will turn up an appropriate list of results on Google. The first will be the specs page for the camera model at the Kodak site. However, when I click on that link, I'm directed not to Kodak but to a Bizrate.com listing for the same camera model on sale. If I back up to the search results and click on the Kodak site link again, I will go there as intended.
I'm running Windows XP. My typical browser is Firefox. Spyware Doctor and Registry Mechanic are my usual main scanning tools, but I also use several other tools on a weekly basis.
I've run full scans with the latest updates for Malwarebytes, SuperAntispyware, Spybot, Ad-Aware, as well as the Kaspersky online (critical areas only) and Spyware Doctor (IntelliScan). They've found nothing of note, just tracking cookies that come from legit sites I've visited (like Kaspersky) and places like pricegrabber that must be related to the redirects.
Thanks in advance for your assistance.
