Hi,

I have been directed to this site for help with an Internet Hijacker by Highjackthis.com. I have run their scan and posted the results below.
My problem mostly occurs when I run Firefox, but I have got the problem using Internet Elplorer. The hijacking does not occur on a regular basis but the site my search engine is redirected to is mostly online-free-scanner.biz. This site tells you that you are infested and need to download and install their anti-virus. I have not done this for obvious reasons.
The nasty thing about this site is that you cannot get off the page or close the browser, I have to close the browser using the task manager.
I have tried a number of malware cleaners to get rid of it but to no avail, Malwarebytes, Ad-aware, Mc Afee, Windows Security Essentials and a few other free programs.

If you have any suggestions I would be most obliged.
