Hi my name is jim and im having a nighmare. Im running xp sp3 with every app updated to the newest version. I have ie8 and firefox. My problem is, when i type a search in google, say ebay.com, u will get a list of normal results as usual with the correct hyper links under them. When i click on any of the links, i may get ebay the first try, but 9 times out of 10 i get taken to some random off the wall site every time. this happens in firefox and ie8. i have reset everything, unistalled reinstalled, delted the data folders, i have run every app i can think of on its max setting fully updated. bitdefnder, kaspersky, nortons, avg, mcafee, trojan hunter, sopso, hyjack this, rootkit finder, combofix, spybots, malwarebytes, spydoctor, counterspy, superanti spyware, ect, i cant even remember them all, scan were done in safe mode and noramal mode, in admin account and my account, i reset the host file, firewall, winsockfix, check for proxy ip settings, blow out every temp folder thats hidden, used ccleaner. Ive done everthing thing i can think of know to man and that ive read online. Ive spent allmost a week and a half day and night trying to get rid of this sucker, and it just wont stop happening. Its driving me insane, why to people have to make rotten crap like this.
Thanks for any help you might be able to offer
