I am a new member of this forum. I have a fairly ordinary understanding of computers. I seem to have some malware affecting my computer.
When i use any search engine and select a link in the answers, I am misdirected to what appears to be random sites. The Housecall addon that i got from trend micro suggests its a site that has malicious intent most of the time.
This may or may not be important, but a week ago I had an infection from a Virus that pretended to be an antivirus software, If memory serves it was Security Alert. Following instructions from Symantec that infection was apparently removed.
I am running Windows XP Home.
I use Symantec Endpoint Protection
I have scanned with malwarebytes and Trend Micro House Call and at this moment I am clean to these products knowledge.
I do have a Hijack this log which i have just run.
I would appreciate any help you might have.
PS I have also posted this with Hijackthis log to the log forum.
