I'm using Mozilla Firefox 3.6.3 on an Acer Aspire One netbook. A couple days back I realized that whenever I click on a search result provided by Google search, it'll redirect me to other sites (some are shopping sites, some are just completely random), or in some occasion, it'll pop up a new tab and open a weird website.
I've tried GooRed Fix, Hitman Pro, and TDSS killer. No Luck. Whenever I tried using TDSS killer, it'll find a kernel memory rootkit, and it told me that it'll be removed after reboot. Well, it didn't, I still get redirected (Hitman Pro also found a rootkit called "intelppm.sys", whenever I tried to delete it, it'd tell me to insert my OS disk, of which I don't have).
I found a very similar post like this already, but since my computer skill is so bad, I don't want to take my chances to follow all the instructions given on this topic:http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/308460/persistent-redirect-rootkit-makes-me-feel-like-this/
I ran out of ideas, and very clueless now. Since I'm a college student, google search is very vital to have. I really greatly appreciate some help.
