Hi,

I have recently been inflicted with a virus that is redirecting me when I click on google search results. It has redirected me to both a myspace.com address and an ebay address, and seems to be causing all new search windows to be opening in new IE windows (I have checked and I have disabled this option in google's preferences). When I click on the google search results I have noticed the status line saying "waiting for searchtracker.com"

I believe it has also opened random pop-ups, although only once so far. I only noticed it when I woke up this morning and about 10 IE windows were open with various adverts on them (strange considering none were open when I went to bed).

I have looked into viruses that claim to do this, but having followed the removal instructions for "Jakposh" I have not found the alleged bogus registry keys present on my computer.

A recent Norton scan picked up the following viruses, but these don't appear to be causing my problems: Infostealer.Gampass, Backdoor.Tidserv. I have followed the necessary removal steps for this anyway, but they don't appear to have fixed the problem.

Any help or thoughts on what this might be and how to remove it would be hugely appreciated!!!

Thank you in advance!
