Hi - Two days ago I noticed that Firefox is opening new sessions to bogus landing pages with the following URL:

hxxp://results.google-analytics.com/

Steps Taken:

1. Ran Malwarebytes - And it does not detect anything at all
2. Ran Superantispyware - It does not detect anything at all

Another Issue - IE8 Keeps Redirecting me to ad sites stating results.yahoo.com

I am familiar a little bit with OTS and OTL and combo fix.

OS Windows 7

Hoping to hear from you soon.

Thanks

Hi,

If you still need help with this post fresh dds logs, please. Also, it looked like ComboFix was run there (not recommended without supervision of trained helper). Kindly post back its log too.
