Hello all,

I'm having several issus at the moment that I've spent the last few days trying to rectify, but I'm stumped.
I've been looking through various threads, and trying different ideas, but nothing seems to be fixing it for me..

1) Cannot connect to some websites [Firefox - server not found] I know my internet connection is strong, ie I can stream movies no problem, but there are a couple of sites I just can't connect to, that I know are working ok, as I've checked on my phone.

2) Google links being spam - after choosing a link after a Google search, I have to keep closing the window and re-clicking it. I'm also getting unusual Google pop up, and mention of Google Analytics

3) Windows cannot check for updates...No idea what is going on here!

I have a Dell Laptop with Windows Vista, with Panda Cloud Antivirus and Lavasoft Ad-ware.

Any tips would be most appreciated.

Cheers :thumbsup:

EDIT: Moved from Vista to more appropriate Am I Infected ~ Hamluis.

Welcome zig-a-zig-ah,

I would suggest checking out the AM I Infected? What Should I Do? forum.
Sounds like you have some malware related issues.

Good Luck!! :thumbsup:
