this is my first post. Thanks for helping me.
I've XP home sp2. Since a day or two, when I do search in google or bing, and click on any of the links in results, it is redirecting me to some ad sites. Upon research, as expected, it seems to be virus and posted on forums here also.
I scanned using microsoft essentials, and Malware bytes, and cleaned some virus found. Rebooted, and still I am experiencing above issue.
Appreciate your help.
Update: I browsed the forum, and used KSP rootkiller application posted. It found rootkit snowman.sys under system32\drivers as shown,and removed it. I think I am back in business, as the links are working correctly. Thanks!!!
