I keep getting redirected when I search something in Google or Bing. After searching something on either search engine, the search results page will load, but once I click on one of the result links it redirects me to something totally differnt. The websites I'm redirected to vary between various websites - often including something called "Mfeed", "Stopzilla" and a few others. I have tried searcing with both internet explorer and firefox with the same results. I am also unable to log onto Google Talk or Skype. When I try to log onto Google Talk I get an error message that says "Could not authenticate server".
I first noticed this off and on a week or so ago but wasnt sure if I was imagining things, since it only happened rarely. Approximately two days ago I recieved a notice that my outlook was signing onto a server without a valid signature, but I clicked "ok" or something (in hindsight, not the smartest idea). Since then, the search engine redirects have been increased significantly and now 100% of the search engine results are redirected.
Since I noticed the infection, and before I logged onto bleeping computer, I ran Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, which found 8 infections and then said it removed them. I also ran SUPERAntiSpyware which found 1 trojan and 993 adware cookies, all of which were removed by the program.
I hope this information is helpful to anyone. If anyone can help me I would greatly, greatly appreciate it.
Thanks so much,
