Hi Everyone,

This is my first post here, and I am really in need of some help with this problem if possible please.

When I complete a search in Google and then try and click on the search result, I get redirected to one of the following sites (K-directory, Gomeo and some others of which I can't remember the names right now) every second time I click on the link on the results page.

I have tried numerous fixes for this and think that it's been resolved but it's still here.

The programs I have tried to fix the problem include Avast/AVG/TDSS/Goored/Combofix/OTM/Spybot/ATF Cleaner, in some form or combination at some point, but still it comes back again. Also tried new version of hosts file.

If anyone might be able to help that would be great as I am stumped by this now, I also tried looking through previous posts but haven't found a solution that fits.

I am running Windows 7, Pentium Dual Core T4400 @ 2.20Ghz, 4GB Ram, 1TB HDD, and browsers are Google Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer, and this has happened on all browsers.

Please let me know if you need more information and apologies if I have not posted this in the correct forum.

Thanks everyone.

With the information you have provided I believe you will need help from the malware removal team. I would like you to start a new thread and post a DDS log HERE and include a link to this thread. Please make sure that you read the information about getting started before you start your thread.

It would be helpful if you post a note here once you have completed the steps in the guide and have started your topic in malware removal. Good luck and be patient. Help is on the way!

Thank you.

Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.
Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
