A few weeks ago I noticed that my Google Search Results in Firefox are being redirected at random times and with random search results to various strange sites. Some of the redirected links go to a site that provides a download link. Some go to a website landing page for some sort of ad generation site. I cannot predict when this will happen. I also noticed that when going to the Google Search start page, that my cursor doesn't automatically start in the search field like it does on Chrome or Internet Explorer.
I have run SuperAntiSpyWare, Malwarebytes, GooredFix. Some items were found and fixed, but I still have the issues with Google search results being hijacked. I'e searched through the BC forums, but haven't found anything that was able to remove it without some advanced help. Not wanting to mess up my computer I thought I would post here.
System: Windows 7 Professions 32-bit
Please let me know what you would like me to do.
Thanks for any help. I'm already subscribed to the topic.
