Hey All,

My name's Kevin and I've had this issue with results5.google.com for about 2 weeks now. I'm running Windows7 on a laptop with a 3G Wireless Internet Connection. I was previously using PrevX, and after encountering this issue, I tried to step it upto McAfee, but the problem still persists. I've done countless scans with those programs, and for some reason they can't find any issues.

Basically, I get a lot of redirected links in google, a lot of pop-ups for results5.google.com, googleanalytics, and various other sites that I can't think of right now. It seems a lot of anti-malware tools and sites are getting blocked in Internet Explorer aswell. Whenever I try to download a program, usually I have to move the link into FlashGet, my download program.

Was going to post a log, but your stickys said not to?
Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks!!
:thumbsup:

Kev,

From my experience these redirects are related to your router being infected with a manual DNS address rather then a automatic DNS address which it should be by default. Go to your routers config page and set your DNS back to automatic and remove whatever random DNS address might be in there.

Hey, thanks, switched it back to Auto and it's working fine now. I'll report back if I still have issues.
