I hope you can help me because when I click on a search result (both in google and bing), my searches are re-directed all over the place. The main domain that usually comes up is overclick.cn. I've run malwarebytes and it came up clean. I also recieve all sorts of fake warnings telling me that I have a virus and that I should pay to download a specific type of spyware. What should I do?

Thanks a lot,


Josh

We Need to check for Rootkits with RootRepeal
  • Download RootRepeal from the following location and save it to your desktop:
  • Extract RootRepeal.exe from the zip archive.
  • Open Posted Image on your desktop.
  • Click the Posted Image tab.
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • Check the Files box: Posted Image
  • Push Ok
  • Check the box for your main system drive (Usually C:), and press Ok.
  • Allow RootRepeal to run a scan of your system. This may take some time.
  • Once the scan completes, push the Posted Image button. Save the log to your desktop, using a distinctive name, such as RootRepeal.txt. Include this report in your next reply, please.

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
