Hello,
I've sifted through many threads trying to find exactly the same issues that I've been having, with no luck.
About a week ago my daughter told me she had a virus on her computer. Well, it was in pretty bad shape indeed. She had the Antivirus 2010 virus, from the best I could tell. She kept getting pop-ups saying that she had a virus and needed to download software to get rid of it. I tried to use System Restore but it would not work. (virus?) I finally downloaded Malwarebytes, and it seemed to resolve the issue. But then she called me and said when she clicked on a link it took her to a different site. Sure enough, you google something and when you click on one of the links it takes you to an advertising site. Then, you can go back to google, click on the link again, and it will take you to the desired site. I've tried everything with no luck. I have a log file from HiJackThis ready if someone believes they can help.
Thanks in advance.....

My daughter's computer has a virus that redirects from search engines to ad sites. I did a Hijackthis log if I could get someone to check it out for me. Thanks in advance.
