Hello~ I've had this problem for about a week now. Everytime I do a google search, I'm redirected to some other generic looking search engine (mainly going to other search engines, hotels, shopping searches). I've tried searching on aol search, askjeeves, etc and it seems to effect every one of them everytime I do a search. Running Avast found some viruses and I was hoping it would solve the problem but it didn't.
Other virus scans just come up clean. I don't know what do to now, it seems my computer is getting a little slow overtime aswell.

I am running Windows XP Home Edition and using Firefox.
Currently have installed Avast Antivirus, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and SUPERAntiSpyware.

Thank you~

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
