Hi all,
I am new to this website, and do not have as much computer knowledge as I would like. As the topic title says my internet browsing is acting up. My home page is still intact and has not been redirected. When I search yahoo (my home page and browser) for something a list of websites appears as normal, but when I click the link to the one I want, my browser reads http://www.bee-find.com and redirects me to another seemingly random page with a list of links for the subject I searched for originally. I thought there might be an issue with yahoo, so I tried it with google as well with the same results.

An example is I opened my internet and searched for stone veneer, a list of companies that carry stone veneer came up, but when I clicked on one the bee-find.com came up and sent me to a page called Five Choices For Me, and contained a list of links for companies with stone veneer. The actual web adress it sent me to is


when I click one of the links on the five choices website, it actually takes me to where I wanted to go. Any help on getting my browser back to normal would be greatly appreciated!

EDIT: I forgot to mention that when I type the exact web adress in it takes me to the right site. Thats how I got here :thumbsup:

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2

MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the definition updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.
  • Exit MBAM when done.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so MBAM can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

Now run the Full-Scan and post the new log.

Also scan with this:

Run Scan with Kaspersky

Please do a scan with Kaspersky Online Scanner. Please note: Kaspersky requires Java Runtime Environment (JRE) be installed before scanning for malware, as ActiveX is no longer being used.)

If you are using Windows Vista, open your browser by right-clicking on its icon and select 'Run as administrator' to perform this scan.

Open the Kaspersky WebScanner page. http://www.kaspersky.com/virusscanner
Click on the button on the main page.
The program will launch and fill in the Information section on the left.
Read the "Requirements and Limitations" then press the accept button.
The program will begin downloading the latest program and definition files. It may take a while so please be patient and let it finish.
Once the files have been downloaded, click on the settings button.
In the scan settings make sure the following are selected:
Detect malicious programs of the following categories:
Viruses, Worms, Trojan Horses, Rootkits
Spyware, Adware, Dialers and other potentially dangerous programs
Scan compound files (doesn't apply to the File scan area):
Mail databases
By default the above items should already be checked.
Click the Save button, if you made any changes.
Now under the Scan section on the left:

Select My Computer

The program will now start and scan your system. This will run for a while, be patient and let it finish.
Once the scan is complete, click on View scan report
Now, click on the Save Report as button.
Save the file to your desktop.
Copy and paste that information in your next post.
