I am Beverly and I'm kind of new to this forum. I have been here before through my previous virus protection company. Today, I find myself here because while in Firefox 4.0, a certain page I try to load, www.articlesbase.com, in the browser immediately redirects to Yahoo. I won't use the page I'm redirected to at all or click on anything on the page even though it does seem to be a legitimate yahoo page. The url is http://search.yahoo.com/web?fr=slv502-tyc and nothing happens while there, and the page itself could be harmless, I still will not click on anything on the page because of how I got there. The redirect itself is invasive enough. It's taking me where I did not ask to go.
It's the only redirect I am experiencing, but I do need to get to this site regularly, but can't. I can get to the site fine using IE and Safari, however, and it reminds me of when I had a rootkit virus on my old computer. I was wondering if I should run COMBOFIX? That solved the problem on my old computer running XP. Now I'm running Windows 7.
I ran Malwarebytes to no avail. It did however find 7 registrykey infections which were quarantined, but after restarting, no luck.
Can anyone help me out? Should I run COMBOFIX then upload the log? Your help is greatly appreciated as I am afraid of the infection spreading. Of course, I will not load the suspect site again.
Thank you so much,
