Hello, this is my first post. I was pointed to BleepingComputer by this Google forum:


I am experiencing some type of problem with a "redirect" virus, I think. When I click on a Google search result I am constantly redirected to other sites. This is happening in both Firefox (my primary browser) and IE. I have run current versions of AVG, Adaware, MalwareBytes, and HitmanPro, which was recommended by many posters on the above thread. None of them have resolved the issue. According to much of what I've read, ComboFix may be the only solution, but I thought it best to post here first to get a professional recommendation.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Also, I am using Windows XP Version 5.1 with Service Pack 3. That might help.

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
