The usual story, using google my links get hijacked. This happens in ie. ff does not get hijacked, but does take ages to open a link.

Please can you advise? I have done several scans using avira, malwarebytes and superantispyware, all found infects put the hijacks are still happening. I tried to run combofix but it just hung at the blue screen that says "will take around 10 mins....." for hours, even overnight.

Thanks in advance

Hi guys.

After running megabytes anti malware and Super antispyware which both detected and removed several infections but not the hijack one, I ran TDSS Rootkit Removing Tool which appears to have cleaned it.

Thanks for looking

Kind regards
