Like the title says when ever im searching via google the links just redirects me to a random ad site :thumbsup: , also I tried installing spybot to see if I can delete what is causing this but when I installed it and tried scanning it crashes 5 seconds into the scan. I tried opening up Spybot again but it looks as if it has "deleted" itself but w/e this malware it's only making it read only..ALSO I tried downloading a windows update (ie 8) and it does the same thing with Spybot I run the installer 5 seconds in and it crashes. At the moment im trying to get HJT to run and scan so I can get a log but it does the same thing mentioned above. Ive been toying around to see what I can run and what I cannot run, looks like most antivirus programs wont work only thing I found working was, eset nod32 and when I did a full system scan nothing came up..

As no logs have been posted, I am shifting this topic from the specialized HiJack This forum to the Am I Infected forum.

==>PLEASE DO NOT NOW POST LOGS<== unless a log is specifically requested.
Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
