My Yahoo search requests are getting redirected by Windowstopcontent.com. I read somplace that the Task Manager processes would show a listing names Freddy46.exe. I don't see anything by that name. Does anyone know what this is currently called or how to remove it?

I downloaded and ran the Malware Software. That did the trick. I saved the log but do not know how to upload. I'll read some more instructions and upload later.

THANKS :thumbsup:

Because this is related to an infection, I am moving this topic to the Am I Infected forum.

Alex, no link is needed. When you click on the topic in the original forum (in this case Web Browsing/Email and Other Internet Applications) you will be re-directed to AII and the topic.
