Currently experiencing problems when trying to follow seach results from within a browser (IE 8 or Firefox), for both google, live search

searches return links around the correct topic, however when clicking the links browser displays random unrelated pages at random, going back and re-clicking normally provides the correct page

Also getting webpages alerting me that I have a virus infection, trying to get me to install some kind of cleanup (hoax pages)

I have run McAfee Virus full system scan, (no problems) Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware no issues reported, and also CCleaner

have tried to complete the instructions posted on your website prepartation guide before using hijack this http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/

however the DDS scan fails to complete, with my laptop being rebooted prior to completing the scan, leaving a number of temp files all over my desktop

I have managed to complete the RootRepeal report

and also managed to complete a Hijack this scan from Trend Micro Hijackthis 2.02 as well as the startup list log

Further help now appreciated, let me know if you need me to upload the scans I have managed to complete

As no logs have been posted, I am shifting this topic from the specialized HiJack This forum to the Am I Infected forum.

So what do I do now, as I do have logs from hijack this etc as detailed in the original message but did not want to post them with original message unless asked to do so

Now when I open internet explorer it just randomly continues to open new instances of IE

HELP
