I got a java script which installed Internet Security 2010. I quickly removed it with the sailor soft removal guide.


It all seemed good. However, I've started getting redirects when I go from google bringing me to random ad search engines. In addition, if my browser is left for long enough it will just randomly “search” for whatever is in the search bar.

I'm on windows XP and I'm running Firefox Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv: Gecko/20100625 Firefox/3.6.6 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729).

I'm also running AVG it does absolutely nothing.

In any case, let me know what I can do. I'm pretty receptive to anything at this point.

It also changed my background, occasionally my internet is disrupted, and other times my profile won't load. However, these are other problems and I guess I'll deal with them later.

Try this:

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
