I have some kind of virus or malware that is causing a redirect when I click on different websites during a search. It is very random. Some websites go to the right place, and others are re-directed to some other site than it is supposed to go to. I have Microsoft Security Essentials for virus protection. The re-direct started yesterday. Then, I got some fake anti-virus junk with a bunch of pop-ups that said something about Microsoft 2010 security viruses. I knew that was not right, and did what I could to remove that. It seemed to work, but the re-direct thing is still happening. The computer is slow, but probably because I have too much junk on it. Anything to get rid of the re-direct would be helpful and appreciated and any other advice on getting the computer cleaned up to work better and quicker would be a total bonus. Thanks for your time.

I have a Hijack this log as well as several other logs available if needed.

Hi,

Please run the following program

Please download Posted Image Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application or, if you are using Vista, right-click and select Run As Administrator on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue. If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  • On the Scanner tab:
    • Make sure the "Perform Full Scan" option is selected.
    • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
  • Back at the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes, they may alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please permit the program to allow the changes.

Thanks :thumbsup:

Did that twice. Here you go. I saved the first log also if you want to see it. It did find and clean some things, but still having the problems. I did manage to get rid of the fake security pop-ups, but still having a re-direct problem as well as having Microsoft Security Essentials finding something every couple of minutes.

Okay, there's malware on there that can't be removed through the tools available on this forum.

Please post a new topic at the Malware forum

When you have done this please let me know by PM.

Thanks
