I guess maybe I did something wrong as my topic has been moved but I don't know where to.
Please let me try again - I'm not super computer oriented, so please have mercy on me.

My searches in Google keep getting redirected to other sites. Sometimes to other search sites and sometimes to totally unrelated sites (like Yahoo jobs). Can someone help me figure out what is wrong and how to fix it. I've run a HJT log if that helps.

Many many thanks.

Hello Cjo.

I guess maybe I did something wrong as my topic has been moved but I don't know where to.

Your topic is now moved to the Malware Removal forum now: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/304078/antivirus7-removal-and-cleanup-needed/. For further reference, you can find the topics you started by clicking your Profile and selecting Find Member's Topics. ;)

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 Malware Response 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 Malware Response 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 Malware Response 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 Malware Response Team.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Please bookmark, subscribe to that topic or alternatively just keep viewing that topic at least once a day until a staff member responds to you.

With Regards,
Note: Please do not PM me asking for help, instead please post it in the correct forum requesting for help. Help requests via the PM system will be ignored.

If I'm helping you and I don't reply within 48 hours please feel free to send me a PM.

The help you receive here is always free but if you wish to show your appreciation, you may wish to Posted Image.
