I hope someone can help me. I have a hijacker or the remnants of one that I can't seem to fix. It is affecting both Firefox and IE. When I do a search in Google and click on a resultant link, it redirects me to another site. Typically, if I repeatedly open the link in new tabs, the first two tabs redirect, the next gets a file not found (also a redirect) and the last is the actual page I am trying to go to.

Whoever wants to tackle this one is probably going to want to kick me in the head. I ran pretty much every anti spyware and av program I could get my hands on when this first happened trying to fix this (I had never gotten stuck before with something I couldn't take care of myself). And basically all traces seem to be gone except the redirecting and, for the life of me, I can't figure out how they are doing it.

Hopefully, someone out there will be kind enough to lend a hand in fixing this and explaining how it is redirecting me.

Attached please find a Hijack This log and MBAM log from today.

Much thanks,

I never got a response from anyone, so I eventually tried to fix this myself. In the end, running GooredFix.exe with the #2 option repaired the problems I was having with both IE and Firefox.

Please close this topic.
