I've got a particularly tricky issue. There is an external site, chegevarka[dot]com, being requested every time I hit the Google home page. When loaded, this file is a simple javascript code that deletes the main Google javascript object, preventing the autocomplete, etc from working. Sometimes the search results page redirects me to an unwanted page. I have NoScripts running now, so the home page doesn't break anymore, but the attempt at loading this script is still being made.

I've run MBAM, AntiVir, and Spybot, all come back clean.

After reading some similar posts here, I tried TDSSKiller which came back clean, and RKUnhookerLE which said "Possible RootKit Activity"

I also ran SUPERAntiSpyware in Safe Mode which found some tracking cookies, but nothing that helped with the redirect.

I'm running Windows XP and my main browser is Firefox 3.6.10.

Any suggestions?
