Windows XP home edition on an ACER eee netbook. Windows and anti malware programs all up to date.
Scanned with spybot/avast/malwarebytes/MCSFT security essentials/Hijack This -- all to no avail as they find nothing
Avast does now catch and stop google from redirecting sometimes, but scans (full and quick) come up empty.
Besides the redirect issue, the computer is also freezing up constantly when browsers are open. The browser will quit responding then explorer will appear to quit working (the explorer bar at the bottom gets bigger and quits responding) and the entire computer freezes. Also when the computer is left without use the screen will go black and must be restarted to use again.
Again I hate to take up anyones time, but this dang thing has exhausted my computer knowledge. Wish I had more info to pass on but all my scans come up empty. I have downloaded Combofix but don't trust myself to use it without advice.
EDIT: Moved from XP to more appropriate Am I Infected forum ~ Hamluis.
