Well, I'm a great problem solver when it comes to computers, but this has me stumped. Whenever I try to Google something in either firefox or iexplorer, the page either freezes or randomizes the link. For example, I type "yahoo" in the Google search engine, it brings up the links, and when I select any of them, it brings me to a site that I've never visited. I have Trend Micro Internet Security, but it hasn't found anything. I tried using HJT on a admin account on this computer, and it gave me a message saying that I "don't have the appropriate permissions" and "windows cannot access the file", but I have Full control permission turned on for it. I'm running Vista. I've tried running Trend House Call, and it wouldn't run at all.

Any advice would be great. Like I said, usually can figure out my problems, but this is something different. I can speak traditional or modern Tech Jargan, so fire away! :thumbsup:

Hello MAXXER and :thumbsup: to BleepingComputer.

Let's take a look-see.

Please install RootRepeal
Note: Vista users ,, right click on desktop icon and select "Run as Administrator."Disconnect from the Internet or physically unplug your Internet cable connection.
Close all open programs, scheduling/updating tasks and background processes that might activate during the scan including the screensaver.
Temporarily disable your anti-virus and real-time anti-spyware protection.
After starting the scan, do not use the computer until the scan has completed.
When finished, re-enable your anti-virus/anti-malware (or reboot) and then you can reconnect to the Internet.
  • Extract RootRepeal.exe from the zip archive.
  • Open Posted Image on your desktop.
  • Click the "Drivers" tab, and then click the Posted Image button.
  • 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.

In your next reply, please include the following:
RootRepeal log
