Hello.

I have previously asked about this in another thread so background is in there - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...p;#entry1221094

Briefly, I am getting redirected when using Google. It performs the search okay, but about 30-50% of the time when I click on a link instead of taking me to the correct page it will go somewhere different, an advertising page or a different search page. I can usually click the back button and retry the link and it will take me to the correct page then.

Also sometimes, maybe 10% or less of the time, when I click a link I get a popup message that says updates to my 'web media player' need to be installed (it does not mention a specific program or brand). I close the popup and get a blank white screen with a message saying Web Media Player Updating and a series of file names flash up to indicate they are downloading.

I have not installed any new 'web media players' recently and can only assume this is something I do not want downloading.

Every time it happens I just close the page. I don't know where it downloads to so I don't know how to check what has happened.

I had a few other issues (mentioned in the other thread) but they all seem to have stopped recently.

Yesterday on one occasion my computer shut itself down and rebooted totally unprompted. I had a problem with it doing that about 6 months ago, it went through a phase of rebooting randomly, and eventually windows became corrupted. I thought at the time it was my hard drive packing up (it is a 6 year old laptop) due to noises it had been making, so I replaced the hard drive and reinstalled windows and haven't had that problem again until now. It is possible it is due to overheating as it does get very hot, but it had only been on about 10 minutes when it did it yesterday and it seems a coincidence that it just happened again now when I have this other problem.

I followed all the advice given by quietman7 in the other thread and none of the spyware or anti-virus programs I have are finding anything. So he advised me to post a HJT log here.

Thankyou very much for your time and assistance!
