hello, i need some help and this is beyond my capabilities. whenever i try to use any search engine, usually Google, it is real slow and when i do get results, a page will come up and then immediately be changed, or redirected (not sure which), to a different set of results. usualy including sites like toseeka.com, searchnext.com. i have run malwarebytes, ad-aware, avg 8.5, with no change in the problem. i even tried combofix, and no change. all other pages or sites seem ok, just searches. any help would be fantabulous!! just let me know what you want me to do and i will.

i am running windows xp, the above mentioned anti spyware/ malware, and i usualy use google chrome.

thanks in advance kevin

If you’re clean, you should create a new Restore Point to prevent possible re-infection from an old one.

Go Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click System Restore. Choose the radio button marked Create a Restore Point on the first screen then click Next. Give the Restore Point a name and then click Create. Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point. Go Start > Run and type: "Cleanmgr" (without the quotes). Click Ok > More Options tab > Clean Up in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.

Also, go Start > Control Panel and double-click Add or Remove Programs. Post back and report any Java or JS2E entries that you have.

Those Java entries are out of date. You should remove them and then get the latest from here:

You can uninstall SUPERAntiSpyware and ATF Cleaner if you want to.
