Posted 29 December 2009 - 07:40 PM

When I do a search from Google or Yahoo, about 50% of the time I get redirected to search sites like "searchfindsite" or "questbooster" that returns "matches" for my initial search request.. occasionally I get redirected to a survey site that asks questions like where I am logging in from right now... yesterday I also had the "Internet Security 2010" issue that a lot of others have posted about... I have since gotten rid of that and have ran all the recent versions of Malware Bytes Anti-Malware, Super Anti-Spyware, CA Antivirus, CCleaner and Ad-Aware.. all of those turn up clean, but the pop-ups remain. I have turned off internet/network access on the affected computer, but have another computer with access to the internet to do whatever other diagnostics are needed.... Thanks in advance for your assistance...

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Bleeping Computer we get overwhelmed at times, and we are trying our best to keep up. Please note that your topic was not intentionally overlooked. Our mission is to help everyone in need, but sometimes it takes just a little longer to get to every request for help.

If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know. If not please perform the following steps below so we can have a look at the current condition of your machine.

If you have not done so, include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

Upon completing the steps below another staff member will review and take the steps necessary with you to get your machine back in working order clean and free of malware.

If you have already posted a DDS log, please do so again, as your situation may have changed.
Use the 'Add Reply' and add the new log to this thread.

Thanks and again sorry for the delay.

We need to see some information about what is happening in your machine. Please perform the following scan:
  • Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
  • A small box will open, with an explanation about the tool. No input is needed, the scan is running.
  • Notepad will open with the results, click no to the Optional_Scan
  • Follow the instructions that pop up for posting the results.
  • Close the program window, and delete the program from your desktop.
Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run. After downloading the tool, disconnect from the internet and disable all antivirus protection. Run the scan, enable your A/V and reconnect to the internet. You can find information on A/V control HERE

Thank you for posting back. I'm sorry we couldn't get to you sooner. Sometimes a reformat and reinstall is the quickest solution.

Since this issue seems to be resolved, this thread will now be closed.

In case you experience any problems with the computer, please start a new topic.

Happy computing,
