I think I have a Hijack virus or spyware. Whether I'm running IE, Mozilla or Chrome...when I do a search, it pulls up a bunch of hits. When I click on anyone of those hits, it brings me to a totally unrelated website? Please, please advise? I've run Norton, Spybot and Adaware twice, once in safe mode...still no luck.

thanks

As no logs have been posted, I am shifting this topic from the specialized HiJack This forum to the Am I Infected forum.

==>PLEASE DO NOT NOW POST LOGS<== unless a log is specifically requested.
Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.

I have a HiJack this log to post, but I haven't yet because I thought I read something about not posting logs until specifically asked?

That's referring to Combofix

Please read the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". If you cannot complete a step, then skip it and continue with the next. In Step 6 there are instructions for downloading and running DDS which will create a Pseudo HJT Report as part of its log.

You will also be instructed to create a Root Repeal Log

When you have done that, post your log in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

The HJT team is very busy and it will take awhile to get to your post
Please be patient and good luck
Mark
