Hello, I am having trouble with redirects while using Google. It doesn't happen every time, but sometimes when I click on a link in Google I am redirected to some advertising page rather than the page I had intended to go to. It seems to occur on every fourth or fifth web page I try to click on. I have read that some people have this problem occur every single time they try to click on a link, but in my case the problem seems to be more subtle (although still very frustrating). I have scanned the computer with several kinds of anti-virus and anti-malware software, and have removed a few examples of malware and several trojans. Each time I scanned I thought I had solved the problem, but then the next time when I searched through Google to the fourth or fifth web page I would end up getting redirected again to another advertising site. I would be very grateful if one of the experts here could help me to sort this out.

Here is the DDS file:

The problem might be resolved now. It seemed to only affect Firefox, and apparently it came from a file called overlay.xul. There is a Firefox add-on called XULRunner 1.9.1 which I think might have mysteriously appeared on my add-on list a while back, and I suspect it might be related. I have disabled the add-on now.

I learned about overlay.xul from this page http://spillspace.com/2009/new-firefox-virus/

On my Vista laptop I found the file at C:\Users\YOUR NAME\AppData\Local\{3C98971D-7B19-4BC0-BF75-5A7B6A361BF4}\chrome\content\overlay.xul.

After following all the advice from the spillspace web page I am no longer being redirected no matter how much I try. I removed the overlay.xul file and replaced it with a blank Notebook .txt file with the same name; "overlay.xul." I also updated my Java Runtime Environment and ran several anti-malware programs. Everything seems to be working correctly at the moment.

Thank you for your response. As I indicated in my second post above, I found that the problem only affected Firefox and was related to a file called overlay.xul. I removed that file and replaced it with a blank text file also called "overlay.xul." I also discovered that my old AVG anti-virus had apparently let quite a few trojans run loose in my computer, but I found and removed them with a variety of programs including Windows Security Essentials, Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware, SUPERAntiSpyware, and a few others. I have had no problems whatsoever since then, and I have been scanning the computer everyday for the past week.

I think it is safe to say that my problem is resolved now. Thank you very much for your time and for the help you provide to all of us here.
