When I use search, I am being redirected to random websites, at times, one just pops up randomly without me typing/doing anything (golfing holidays this morn). Any ideas as to why this is?
I use Windows Xp, Int Exp 8, anything else you need to know?
I have recently had a trojan prob - a fake virus scanning thing appeared in my start up, but McAfee, Malware Bytes, Spybot & SuperAntispyware are all now saying clear. I have also reset Internet Explorer settings.
UPDATE - a page just appeared and said your computer is infected, a scan automatically started running, it said Security Analysis at top and a green bar moved across screen as scanning - it found lots of viruses - then a windows security alert appeared with Remove All , I'm guessing I shouldnt press this?
NEXT UPDATE - An error ocured and internet explorer closed down, therefore losing this page suggesting I remove all - I have re run spybot which has found 6 browser entries - tracking cookies it says under the titles. I am currently running a quick scan of SuperAnti Spyware, so far Adware Tracking Cookie (25) found.
Anything else I could try running please? Ok 33 Tracking Cookies found using SuperAnti Spyware, reboot and will see what happens!
ANOTHER UPDATE - No, did not solve, I have now run a TDSSKiller scan, it has found something in the windows\system32\drivers folder- says will be cured after reboot. Fingers Crossed!!!
OK - I now have McAfee pop up - Buffer Overflow Blocked - what's that about??
Am now running a full malwarebytes scan - wonder what result that will bring! I have a feeling I'm just talking to myself here, oh well, keeps me sane!
LATEST UPDATE - Malwarebytes found 3 Trojans which it said would delete on restart - so far so good - Now for another McAfee scan.
