Posted 10 September 2010 - 12:18 PM

Hello,

when I use my browser (firefox) it re-directs to ad sites constantly. I ave tried all the maleware removal programs I can find in hopes of fixing the problem, but to no avail

I had no issues in getting the DDS log, however I cant seem to get gmer.exe to work. each time I scan my system in gmer, my computer freezes solid and becomes unresponsive. I have a screenshot of the error that is displayed if you would like to look at it.

Thanks in advance

here is my DDS:
