This is my first post here, so I'll try my best to make it easy to read. I use google.com to do searches and whenever I clink on a link, 2 out of 3 times it will direct me to an unknown site which are obviously harmful for my computer. I will get directed to one link and from that link it will direct me to another website. Here are some of the names of the sites I have been redirected to: smartmoney.com, gklife.com, askalot.com, informationgetter.com, and mail.com. There are much more sites to name but i will stop there. I get redirected if I use google or yahoo (I haven't really tried any other search engines). I also use Safari browser and I still get redirected. I have ran various anti-malware programs such as Malware Bytes (my personal favorite) and spyware doctor but none have helped. The problem still persists. This isn't something that I can temporily deal with but since I use google so much it gets annoying when I am redirected to these unknown websites. So my question is what can I do to fix this problem? Do I have to do a hijack this log and fix it or fix it manually? Is this a known virus that can be eliminated automatically using some type of software. I have never had problems with viruses this bad before (usually malware bytes knocks them out) but this time I have tried everyything and its stil there :thumbsup: . Any help is greatly appreciated!
