Posted 30 November 2009 - 01:37 PM

I have seen similar posts here lately and am hoping the brain trust here can help me.

The day before yesterday this computer exhibitied the Anti-Virus Pro malware and the posts on using ComboFix were useful in getting that issue to stop; however, there remains this insidious google re-direct issue. Similar to other posters, I can report it does not exhibit every time, for every google search. It does exhibit in IE 8, FireFox and Chrome. When it does exhibit, the behavior is to redirect to a totally unrelated link.

I have read the other posts on similar topics and am posting the DDS info here in the event anyone has some ideas.

Thank you in advance:
