Posted 08 May 2009 - 07:00 PM

My google links were continually getting redirected to advert/anti spywear sites after acidently clicking on a banner on a webpage.
I ran Ad-Awear and then , Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then Spybot S&D and AVG antivirus.
And it reduced the problem.
I then ran Combofix and removed a root kit.
I though the this had solved the problem but if I click through about 30 google search links I still get one or two redirects. :thumbup2:

the redirects are always to pay search engines or anti-malwear/virus web sites that tell me that my computer is infected.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thank you.
