Hi

God only knows how this has been picked up, but i can seem to shake this.

When searching on google / yahoo, the results page returns normal looking result. Then, every other 'clicked' result ends up being 'redirected' to some spammy url, that in turn forwards to something like ebay or another affilate style link.

Ive trawled now for ages and cant get anything to remove this at all.

attached is the HJT log - and help would be EXTREMELY appreciated!

i have spotted a suspicious process - RTHDCPL.exe - theres a prefetch in temp RTHDCPL.EXE-06918CFA.pf - it seems to take more memory than it should..

(yes - i x-posted this in the xp forum, sorrt - hopefully mod will see and remove)

Im running the rootrepeal as i type (its taken 2hrs so far..)



cheers

sc


[edit] ok, ive just wiped the box instead.. gl all those that end up with this nasty rubbish on their machines!!
