Posted 04 June 2009 - 08:23 PM

Problem: I click on a Google search result (e.g. YouTube), but I'm taken to some other site, not YouTube. Have to resort to typing the actual YouTube address in manually: www.youtube.com/

Am running XP Pro SP3 on a small platform Dell Optiplex P4, 1-GB ram, 160-GB HDD, and 80-GB external HDD.

I've run both "MalWareBytes" (in Safe Mode with Networking - did not have the mouse) and also "Ad-aware Anniversary Edition" in regular mode.

Have disabled both AVG (for the moment) and Ad-aware.

Attached are the 2 DDS scan files:

DDS file:

DDS (Ver_09-05-14.01) - NTFSx86
