Hello all,

For a little more than a week my boyfriend has been experiencing problems with his computer. On the Yahoo search engine page, whenever any result is clicked on the search page, it redirects him to sites like: 'zanga', 'blinkx', 'yellow pages', etc. Very random sites that he has never been to before.

We have done scans from Malwarebytes, Anti-Virus, and superantispyware. In which none have found a problem to fix it. He has windows XP, and this is a desktop computer.

Thank you for your time and appreciate the help! Let me know if you need more information on this.

EDIT: Another thing I should add: It all started with this Anti-Virus 2010 thing. And it gives errors such as:

NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM and it shuts down his computer. It also says DCOM Server PROCESS LAUNCHER

Thank you.
