Hello all. I'm having a bit of an issue with a machine of mine. When using a search engine like Google or Yahoo! I get redirected to an unintended link, like trafficposter or Lucky Search for example. This is independent of which browswer I am using, Firefox and IE behave the same way. I will note that BING works great and i can click any links it provides after performing a search.

Other info about the machine is that it has a current subscription to Norton 360. When the problem started, Norton 360 didn't find anything. AVG (Free) was then tried, as well as Ad-Aware, and Malwarebytes. After only finding simple tracking cookies, the problem still persists.

I have a HiJack This! log that I can post. But I thought it would be common courtesy to ask before posting. If someone can help me it would be much appreciated and I will post the log. Thank you! I will admit that I am more of a hardware geek than a software and web guru. I build gaming machines for fun, and Engineering/CAD/3D modeling machines as well.

Thanks in Advance! :(

maybe this will help.

Hi,

This looks OK.
Are you still getting redirected? Didn't you get a "ERROR: Cannot create file C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRIVERS\ETC\hosts" when you tried HostsXpert? Because in a lot of cases, the hostsfile is locked (because of malware or because of any other 3rd party program)

This worked great! And no, I am not getting an error. I've been running Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware, perhaps that has something to do with it's first attempt success?

Thanks again! BTW, cool dog in your avatar!

Glad I could help. :(

Please read my Prevention page with lots of info and tips how to prevent this in the future.
And if you want to improve speed/system performance after malware removal, take a look here.
Extra note: Make sure your programs are up to date - because older versions may contain Security Leaks. To find out what programs need to be updated, please run the Secunia Software Inspector Scan.

Happy Surfing again!
