Posted 18 January 2010 - 12:53 PM

Google directs me to random websites and my entire system seems to be running slowly.
I have looked this up lots of forums and there are lots of people complaining about the google redirection and getting help, but it never seems to get fixed!

1/4 of the time that I click on links in google I get sent to a random website, usually containing a search, advert or trojan (avast detects).

I use chrome, but it seems to also affect firefox.

I use avast (updated to latest version) it detects nothing.

My hosts file is clean.

I have tried Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and VundoFix.
I have looked in HJ logs, I didn't notice anything
I have Searched through task manager, msconfig and services; I didn't notice anything either.

I thought I'd ask the experts!

Please help!

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.

No one is ignored here.

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.
