I see on here that a lot of people have this problem also, seems to be a very well hidden virus/malware. Basically every so often my browser (firefox) gets hijacked and redirected to some random websites, usually thewebsitesurevey.com, directv.com or something like that. I'm usually pretty good with computers and finding these buggers but I'm having no luck on this one at all. Here's a list of things I've tried:
Gmer: looks clean to me
Hijackthis: looking clean and lean
RootRepeal: CRASHES (on 'report', scan, select all, select drive -> bsod)
combofix: done twice
Avenger: don't know how to use
Also udated to latest Java
I've also loaded up UltimateBootCD and manually cleaned out all local/temp files, any suspicious files etc. and ran some cleaning tools there, also to no avail.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Edit: also wanted to mention this hijack sometimes maximizes Firefox, which is very annoying. Here are some of the redirect url's, I'll post more as I get them:
