Hi, I'm having some strange problems.
In this house, there are a number of networked machines running on Windows XP, connected to the internet through a router.

A couple of the PCs have a funny redirect problem - google searches get hijacked and start going to ask jeeves or some shopping thing. (AVG and some online scanners returned nothing)

One PC has just been reformatted, and some problems still persist (perhaps a router malfunction?). Some sites just fail to load on it, and some games can't connect.

Sorry I can't give more details - but I'm happy to run any suggested checks.

Hello and welcome to Bleepingcomputer.

First download the FREE version of MalwareBytes, install it, update it, then perform a FULL system scan.

Mawarebytes Anti malware http://www.malwarebytes.org/

Post back your results, if you find infections, you may have to go to the AII forum section of BC to ask for assistance in cleaning your computer from experienced malware removal staff.
