Hi All,

My computer has recently been infected with a browser hijacker, which was redirecting my searches through some other site called ESSEARCH, and taking me to other sites which has been really bloody annoying. I tried a variety of different software including spybot, avg, spyware doctor, malwarebytes,ccleaner,hijack this and even combofix but nothing would detect it . That was until I downloaded Superantivirus from www.superantivirus.com, and that found the horrible little virus first time and took care of it, now I have no more problems. So do yourself a favour and download this little beauty(which is absolutely free of course), I highly rate it. :thumbsup:

As no logs have been posted, I am shifting this topic from the specialized HiJack This forum to the Am I Infected forum.

==>PLEASE DO NOT NOW POST LOGS<== unless a log is specifically requested.

Please describe the issues you are experiencing with your computer.

regards, Elise
