Hi. My computer has been redirecting all searches (in IE and Firefox) to random websites since last night. I'm running Windows XP and we did try to download Adobe Flash Player yesterday, so I'm wondering if maybe that was the problem. We deleted Flash Player this morning, but that didn't fix the problem. So,if anyone could help, that'd be great.Occasionally we see a pop up window that says "Threat Detected" and underneath that it identifies the threat as "Exploit Rogue Scanner (type 1634)" if that helps at all.

EDIT: We ran AVG security software earlier and it didn't catch anything. We also ran MalwareBytes and it pulled up 12 things. We removed all of those, but nothing changed. I can post the logs if need be.

NOTE: Every time I try to post our log from HijackThis (I've seen others doing it), we get a "Internet Explorer cannot find webpage," so I'm not sure we'd even be able to post that if you requested it. I tried emailing the log to myself, same issue. The only way I could post anything (email or here) was to take out the log.
