Whenever I do a search from bing, google, yahoo, etc. and click on a link from the search results, my browser (Safari, IE, FF) all start redirecting me to random websites that have nothing to do with the information I wanted. This happens about 90% of the time I click on a search result.
I also get random popups advertising that I am a winner, etc. and firefox (the browser I use the most) is crashing a lot more often than it usually does.
I am certain I have some kind of malware problem.
A while back, when this started, I downloaded MBAM, updated it, and scanned and it found backdoor.bot. MBAM quarantined it, and i deleted it from the quarantine tab (not sure why). I kept on getting hijacked and did some more scans using superantispyware, adaware, spybot, and MBAM but NOTHING has appeared at all yet I still have the problem.
I have tried searching for random backdoor.bot files such as DLLs, etc but cannot find anything of the sort.
Can ANYBODY show me how to fix this?!
I have never reformatted a hard drive or reinstalled an OS before so that could be tough, but Im willing to give it a try!
If you need me to post scan logs I can do that too!
