I've recently been having problems when surfing the net. Sometimes i'll do a google search, click on a link and then i seem to get re-directed to another page that i didn't want, usually some other search engine i've never heard of..gameo or something like that.
I have tried scanning with AVG and MalwareBytes but both come back clear. Then a couple of days ago i downloaded and installed Spybot search and destroy. This found something called Click.GiftLoad. I asked it to fix the problem and it said it had removed it but each time i run the scan it finds it again. Could this thing be causing the problems with my web surfing experience? And if so, how do I get rid of it? I've tried restoring my laptop to the factory settings but to no avail :-(
Thanks in anticipation.
