I have read several topics on here that seems like there having the same problem as me and i thought i would open up my own topic to get the best help from you guys.
OK so the problem im having is i use FireFox to surf the net. i never have any problems with this unless i go to google.co.uk and do a search then when i click on a result i see a blank page for about 3 seconds with the google favicon then the page reloads to some ads or site that i don't want then my AV (Norton Internet Security 2011) displays a splash screen to say that the site is malware or has trogens ect.
If i then click the back button and click the google link again it does the same thing, i repeat this process 3 to 4 times and finally the correct page loads.
I have done a MalwareBytes scan (quick & full) and it found some files and removed them but still the problem remains. I really don't want to do a full format and re-install. (this will be my very last resort)
The PC im running is windows XP sp3 Professional version 2002
Its a personal PC
Any help that you can provide will be greatly appreciated
i have included a log from malwarebytes log that shows no infections (this is because i have already tried to clean the system with no luck)
