After reading the forum topics and seeing what issues others are having, I have followed the experts advice to them with no positive results.
I''m running XP sp3 Firefox is my browser I have AVG free Malwarebytes Anti-malware
I keep getting re-directs from both Firefox and IE when clicking from search results. If the site is on my desktop or I have it bookmarked I can get to the site, otherwise I get directed to various sites. I have found if I open another tab, while the misdirected tab is still up, I can go to the requested site.
After reading similar posts to my issue...I followed the expert advice and downloaded and ran TDSSKiller with no threats found. I then attempted to run bootkit_remover.rar It wouldn't open, so I downloaded 7z program to open the rar file. All I get when I try to open the rar file is a black window that opens only for a nanno second. I may very well have a MBR issue at this point, but am unable to proceed from this point.
I would appreciate any help.
