Hi Guys,

During Google searhes their links are redirecting me to ad/malware sites.
The links them selves seem fine but something is launching new ie windows or taking me to ad/malware sites.
I run sophos av, but also now housecall, defender, kapersky, hijack this. I've even run ComboFix which quarentined a few files.
Registry_backups\AddRemove-Adobe Flash Player ActiveX.reg.dat
Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Network\Downloader\qmgr0.dat.vir
Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Network\Downloader\qmgr1.dat.vir

After reboot Sophos jumped back in and interferred with ComboFix's reboot operations. (I'd forgot to disable auto startup)
Re-Running Combofix scans Ok but does not re-repair on reboot.

The issue is still there - any ideas?

Many thanks,
