My IE has been getting rerouted to "overclick.cn", "yachtclucbs.ca" and a few other sights when I click a link but mosty in google. I know there is something on my comp to make this happen but i have not been able to find it. i have search fourms and found many ppl haveing the same issue.

I have used Ad-Aware anniversary edition (free ware) but it does not find anything with "smart scan" or "full scan". I have also used "Spyzooka" free trial for the search and it finds 2 items in my regestry:
"Win32.AnitSpyGolden [Adware] (Regestry: Software\Microsoft\Internet)"
"Win32.Adware.MP3Z [Adware] (Regestry: Software\Microsoft\Internet)"
althow it only shows part of the path, I can use trial and error to find it like I do with most cases, I cant find them at all.

I dont think I left much out. In the fourm posts I looked in there was talk about "SKYNETxxxxxx". perhaps thats what im trying to fight here?? Its not causing me too many issues, its just getting on my nervers now.

Thanks for the help who ever helps.

FWIW: IMO, Ad-Aware is pretty weak defense.

I would suggest replacing it with either/both SUPERAntispyware and/or Malwarebytes.

First off, thank you for your opinion hamluis. Malwarebytes' did help alot.

I used Malwarebytes' and it deff found items. I will add the logs to this reply.

I used "full scan" for both scans, first cam up with aprox 119ish hits. I reboot and rescan and now no hits. I am having another issue now. When ever an .exe file is ran, be it explorer.exe or notpad.exe, im getting an error.

"xxxx.exe - Bad Image
The application or DLL Globalroot\systemroot\SKYNETsdrswjkr.dll is not a valid windows image. Please check this against your instalation diskette"

*EDIT* The application does run after the error msg. Also a question, is "full scan" needed??

Any ideas what this is all about??

I made a suggestion to the administrative hierarchy...that your post/thread be moved to the section dealing with malware.
