Heres the thing, i googled like crazy to try and figure out what is going on here. I have tried removing firefox and reinstalling completely to no avail. I have also tried running malwarebytes, spybot sd, windows defender, AVG 8.5 free, adaware, superantispyware (which removed some things), and ran through some of gooredfix, but stopped it since it didnt seem to be doing much. I removed a few things but my google results still get hijacked. Also i tried disabling all add-ons in firefox before removing it and deleting all cookies but to no avail.

NOTE: this is in firefox 3.5.2 and i have not tried IE yet

here is my hijack this report, dont know how much use it really is lol

Hello

While we understand your frustration at having to wait, please note that Bleeping Computer deals with several hundred requests for assistance such as yours on a daily basis. As a result, our backlog is quite large as are other comparable sites that help others with malware issues. Although our HJT Team members work on hundreds of requests each day, they are all volunteers who work logs when they can and are able to do so. No one is paid by Bleeping Computer for their assistance to our members.

Further, our malware removal staff is comprised of team members with various levels of skill and expertise to deal with thousands of malware variants, some more complex than others. Although we try to take DDS/HJT logs in order (starting with the oldest), it is often the skill level of the particular helper and sometimes the operating system that dictates which logs get selected first. Some infections are more complicated than others and require a higher skill level to remove. Without that skill level attempted removal could result in disastrous results. In other instances, the helper may not be familiar with the operating system that you are using, since they use another. In either case, neither of us want someone to assist you who is not familiar with your issue and attempt to fix it.

We ask that once you have posted your log and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your thread or make further replies until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The reason we ask this or do not respond to your requests is because that would remove you from the active queue that Techs and Staff have access to. The malware staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response, there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

That is why I have made an edit to your last post, instead of a reply. Please do not multiple post here, as that only pushes you further down the queue and causes confusion to the staff.

Please be patient. It may take a few more days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible.

Thank you for understanding.

well it would seem this has gotten even worse now. I am constantly getting messages about viruses from AVG and i couldnt uninstall adaware, finally got it to "uninstall" and when i rebooted almost all of my installed software was uninstalled and upon each reboot (if i have reinstalled) it dissappears. I cannot run system restore, it gives me an error about a "disc error". It seems most of the programs i have lost had almost all of their files deleted, and some have only had a few items deleted. I also have no avg anymore (it was uninstalled on a reboot) and adaware i still cannot get rid of either. If i dont get any help here it looks like i will need to find a way to just reinstall the OS.
