HELP! :thumbsup: For at least the last two weeks my IE has continually been redirecting me to random sites. It happens when I try to click on a link after I've performed a seach for something specific, like information on a local restaurant. I've disabled all toolbars, including live search (bing), but it is still happening and nothing shows up on Panda Cloud Anti-virus.

If anyone has any ideas about what I can try, I'd really love to hear them.

Thanks for your help.

Debbie

I suggest trying full, updated scans with Malwarebytes and SUPERAntiSpyware.

Hello there,

First lets check if there isn't a rootkit involved here.

GMER
-------
Please download GMER from one of the following locations and save it to your desktop:
  • Main Mirror
    This version will download a randomly named file (Recommended)
  • Zipped Mirror
    This version will download a zip file you will need to extract first. If you use this mirror, please extract the zip file to your desktop.
  • Disconnect from the Internet and close all running programs.
  • Temporarily disable any real-time active protection so your security programs will not conflict with gmer's driver.
  • Double-click on the randomly named GMER file (i.e. n7gmo46c.exe) and allow the gmer.sys driver to load if asked.
  • Note: If you downloaded the zipped version, extract the file to its own folder such as C:\gmer and then double-click on gmer.exe.

    Posted Image
  • GMER will open to the Rootkit/Malware tab and perform an automatic quick scan when first run. (do not use the computer while the scan is in progress)
  • If you receive a WARNING!!! about rootkit activity and are asked to fully scan your system...click NO.
  • Now click the Scan button. If you see a rootkit warning window, click OK.
  • When the scan is finished, click the Save... button to save the scan results to your Desktop. Save the file as gmer.log.
  • Click the Copy button and paste the results into your next reply.
  • Exit GMER and re-enable all active protection when done.
-- If you encounter any problems, try running GMER in Safe Mode.

regards, Elise
