I'm running Vista Home Premium and use firefox/IE. I have built in recovery software from HP and have reloaded the computer to factory condition twice in the last 2 weeks with unsucessful results in getting rid of my problem. Firefox/ie both redirect me when using any search engine to hhtp://gathi.109.asklots.com and the computer appears to be running much slower then normal. I'll type an entry into the search bar, get the results, then click a page, say it to wiki, i'll show in the address bar this
"http://gathi.109.asklots.com/jump1/?affiliate=gathi&subid=109&terms=wikipedia&sid=Z587044408%40EzXwgjN4gTNx8FN1gTMfhjMfNTNy8lN0MzM3MTM4ITM&a=tnguv&mr=1&rc=0" then I'll get redirected to a number of different sites, none of which would be the url I was after, like wikipedia. I use this computer for Music Recording and I need it connected to the internet for sharing purposes with the artists I record, for sending songs etc. the computer is optimized for proformance with no antivirus software running because I need the speed to run my DAW without clipping properly. (not the best situation when connected to the net I know) I've scanned with multiple softwares and nothing seems to be able to catch the problem. I have IE/Firefox setup to delete all browsing history/cookies/ etc upon exit and firefox has do not remember selected.
I usually used to run about 550mb in my proformance monitor part of task manager on startup, now i'm running around 800mb on startup. I ran combofix before, with no change in results. Any ideas?
I also just got this popup when closing out of IE..
