I hope someone might be able to help me out. I ran 3 different Virus Scan utilitys and they couldn't find any detections. I am running Windows XP Pro SP3. My issue is when I open IE8 and go to google or yahoo to do a search and click on a search result I get redirected to some Ad site. I have attached the Hijackthis log in hopes someone could tell me what kind of goodness I have installed on my PC?

hi SupaTech,

Your hjt log is pretty old. If you still need help with the issue, download and post results form DDS:

Please download DDS and save it to your desktop.
Disable any script blocking protection Double click dds.scr to run the tool. When done, DDS.txt will open.
Save both reports to your desktop.
Copy/paste both logs in your reply.
