Hi, I have recently picked up something that causes the results of my search engine searches to be redirected to other sites. This happens in both Firefox and IE. I've been hesitant to test this out too much, but one site it redirected me to was "Theclickcheck.com", although I've gotten redirected to other weird sites, like real estate search engines, etc. The google results are redirected about 50% of the time; bing.com results are redirected maybe 25% of the time. I've run malwarebytes and AVG. AVG didn't detect anything. Malwarebytes found "heuristics.malware". I quaranteened and restarted my computer, but the problem persists. I've also looked at other forums describing the google redirect and don't have "TDSSserv.sys" under my device manager.

Suggestions for what this is and how to remove it?

I am having the same problem. I started a topic last week and no one seems to be able to help.
Now im getting a blocked domain msg when trying to open certain websites.

You probably both do have a virus, and it's of a fairly common and stubborn family. I had exactly the same problem a while back, and I came here for help. Go to the Malware Removal Forum and post your threads there, but READ THIS GUIDE FIRST.

The Malware removal peeps here are great, but expect to wait a little while for a response. There's a lot more people that need help than there are trained helpers. Also it's the holiday season, so less people are on hand. If you can be patient, and you follow the guides, you'll get great help :)

garryus7, you might want to include a list of domains you can't access when you post your problem in the Malware Removal Forum
