Good Afternoon folks -
I am hoping you can assist please. I currently am having two issues on my home computer:

1. When the internet is opened, after a couple of minutes a random second session will launch.

2. When searching will google or yahoo, if I click on one of the links of the search result, I am being redirected to random sites - never the one the search found.

Here is what I have done so far:

1. Run a deep scan with Macfee. - Found nothing.

2. Download and run Spybot search and destroy. This did find a malaware and some spyware which I removed, but it did not fix.

I have been looking through some of the posts on this website however I do not see any of the files that are described.

Any assistance would be greatly greatly appreciated.

Thank you....Greg
