I posted 10 days ago about my problem in HijackThis Logs and Virus/Trojan/Spyware/Malware Removal but have not received a response yet :flowers: Not sure if I should edit that post to include this new information or not...

My Google searches are always redirected to SearchPro and other sites and my Google home page is just not right. I never get a Google doodle and instead of "pages from Canada" I see "Pages from CA". There should be a link to Google.ca offered in franšais but it's missing. Additionally, the link for maps is marked as new, which it so is not. A few more weird things too,

I used my library's wireless hotspot and realized all of my problems were gone...so at home I plugged my laptop directly into my modem and all is well. So I am assuming the problem is with my router. Does it have some way of being identified that I can change to get rid of my problem?

I really don't know where I should have posted this...hope someone can help me :thumbsup:

Reset your router
On the back there should be a small button or a hole which you can insert a toothpick or bent paper clip
Then give the router a new stronger password
If this fails, please wait for a response to your HJT post
