Firefox search bar redirects randomly

Hi there,

I just can't solve this one. Somehow, when I search from the Firefox search bar, when I click a result, it is redirected to some other server.
Combofix, Malware Bytes, Spybot Search and Destroy and AVG do not detect anything.

Turning on Fiddler results in the page meta refreshing to the correct location after a few seconds on a 'blank' page. I have attached a Fiddler .SAZ. To view it, rename from wierd.saz.txt to wierd.saz. then view in fiddler (or I think you can unzip)

Additionaly things I have tried uninstalling firefox, deleting all folders and registry entries for it. No luck.

I had been using opendns; I am now using DHCP to get DNS from my router, router set to obtain automatically, obtaining 71.242.0.12
71.252.0.12.

Please let me know if I can provide any other information.

Hello and welcome, I feel a deeper look is needed.

You will need to Download and Run DDS which will create a Pseudo HJT Report as part of its log..
If for some reason you cannot perform a step, move on to the next.
Please follow this guide. go and do steps 6 thru 8 ,, Preparation Guide For Use Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help . Then go here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs ,click New Topic,give it a relevant Title and post that complete log.

Let me know if it went OK.

Yes, one of our trained experts will review those logs and reply to you.

Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
