Hi, it seems I've been hit with the search redirect trojan. I am using Firefox v3.6.8 and my OS is Windows 7 Ultimate. Whenever I use a standard Google or Bing search, clicking on a link in the search results redirects me to a likely malicious webpage. I've tested with Internet Explorer 8 and it does not appear to be affecting the search results there. Initially, I ran a scan with Spybot S&D which removed a few trojans, but it did not fix my problem. Following some suggestions I saw on a few other websites, I used Hitman Pro 3.5 and AVZ4, but I still did not get a solution to this problem. Some help would be greatly appreciated.

MalwareBytes appears to have solved my problem. Hope it can help some other people!
