This is my first time using the bleepingcomuter forums.
I have Windows XP with SP3. I orginally had the fake microsoft security essentials virus (which as far as I am aware was completely removed), however since then, my laptop has been acting strangely as:
1. I am redirected from google to sites such as "Gomeo" and "Google.com/webhp"
2. I am unable to connect to the microsoft update pages and therefore cannot update windows.
3. My computer has also significantly dropped in speed.
I have so far run about 10 - 12 different antivirus and antimalware software programmes such as....
Microsoft security essentials
Search and destroy
All of which have identified and dealt with some different problems however have not seemed to solve my current issue. I have run these scanners in both normal and safe mode of windows.
I have performed the scans using DDS and GMER as per the "Preparation Guide For Use Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help" page. I have not attached the scans as it was not clear which ones I needed to upload.
Any help and guidance you could give would be grately appreciated.
Many thanks and merry christmas
