Clicking on Google results, get re-directed to other web pages. I think this part of the prob is fixed now since installing and running StopZilla. I've since uninstlled StopZilla. - Edit Problem still exists-

Browser still keeps opening by itself and taking me to advert web pages.

Some web pages that I want to goto and some of the ad web pages are accompanied by an error message (see attached screen shot. I think this has only been happening since unistalling StopZilla.

I use Mcafee Antivirus Plus but it hasn't helped.

Went through all the steps in your Preperation Guide but DDS did not produce any log files. I tried 3 times and disabled McAfee before running DDS. The las time I left it for 30 minutes but still no files were produced.

Have attached GMER log.

Any help would be very much apreciated.
