Hello!

As the topic says, I am having issues with my browser opening new tabs at random when clicking links. I was using Google Chrome. I've tested with Firefox and IE8 and still have the redirect problem. I thought it only happened when searching with google.com, but it happened while clicking a link on this website after typing the address into the address bar.

I'm not sure if AV Security Suite is connected with this issue, but I did end up getting it. I ran Spyware Doctor/Malwarebytes' in Safe Mode with networking to get rid of it. After restarting normally, I was still getting redirected. After running Spyware Doctor/Malwarebytes'/Ad-Aware/CWShredder/HijackThis/CCleaner/Microsoft Security Essentials and finding nothing after running multimple times (in normal and Safe mode with networking), I decided to give up and reformat. Clean install. No Windows.old folder. Everything deleted. And I am STILL getting redirected randomly.

Using Windows 7.

As I have reformatted, I have no logs.

I will download HijackThis and post a log here in a reply (just wanted to get this submitted first).

All advice will be greatly appreciated.

Try resetting your router as the DNS setting may have been changed by the malware.

Ah, I did what jdbaker82 suggested in a different thread and changed my router settings to Get DNS automatically from ISP.

Hopefully this fixes everything, and thank you for the reply.


Edit:

Random update if anyone comes across this.

My computer doesn't appear to be having the redirecting problem, but another computer connected to the router is. (That computer also had the same issues mine did with AV Security Suite, which was deleted from it. Did not reformat it.)

Check DNS settings for the adapter for that computer that is still having problems is it wireless or hard wired? Are the redirects similar? Result5.google?

Hard wired to the same router mine is connected to. And yes, similar redirects to result5.google.
