Hi,

I have the same problem as described in the thread below........it's driving me insane.......

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/267656/google-search-results-keep-getting-re-directed-hijack-log/

It's a mozilla hijacker of some kind which automatically redirects me to different sites like hxxp://feed.genieknows.com when I click on links in google searches.....

I have tried the following:

Adaware
SpyBot
AVG
Malwarebytes Anti Mailware
Stinger
Windows Defender
ESET Online Scan

and still I cant get it out.....none of the scans are finding it......I have even run them all in safe mode......

I'm pretty careful on the sites I visit and usually get rid of any spyware when I get it but this one is a pain and I can't find any info on the web about how to remove it.

I tried a system restore when it initially happened as a last resort but it was still there following the restore.......

I attempted to find the way it was cured in the above thread but it didn't make sense to me......pls can someone help!
many thanks in advance

Now that you were successful in creating those logs you need to post them in our HJT forum There they will help you with the removal through some custom scripts and programs that we cannot run here in this forum

First, try to run a DDS / HJT log as outlined in our preparation guide:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/

If it won't run, don't worry, just give a brief description and tell them that these logs were all you could get to run successfully

Post them here:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/22/virus-trojan-spyware-and-malware-removal-logs/

The HJT team is extremely busy, so be patient and good luck
