It's intermittent but when I do a search I'm being redirected to searchfindsite and other places, instead of what I'm clicking on. If I repeat the search then I do go to the correct url. I had some problems a couple days ago that MalwareBytes cleaned up, but this continues.

I'm mainly using Mozilla Firefox as my browser and I'm running Windows XP. I have McAfee installed on my computer and while it's useful for alerting me to the fact there might be a problem, it's hopeless in cleaning anything up.

If you need me to close out McAfee to run any scans for you, please let me know if the only way to do that is to completely uninstall it.

Thanks for any help you can provide. I will check back every five minutes or so for instructions.

Hi, I'm getting intermittent redirects when doing searches with Yahoo or Google. I had a warning from McAfee 2 days ago about a trojan and thought it was cleared up by MalwareBytes, but the indirect and slower computer problem remains. I'm using Mozilla Firefox, and Windows XP.

What I'm done is 2 full scans of a updated Malwarebytes and nothing is showing up any longer.

I'm currently using my laptop and the infected computer is in safemode and I've run Atf-Cleaner on it and it's currently doing a full scan with Superantispyware free edition which was updated.

After this current full scan is complete where do I go from here?

I've posted this problem a couple days ago when the Trojan alert was made by McAfee but didn't get any answers to that post.
