Hello, first time poster & I'm lost as far as what to try next. When I click on search results in Google, I randomly get redirected to a page other than the one I wanted to be on. What at first I thought was a fluke, is happening more and more. I searched for a solution and found your site - after I got redirected somewhere else. I have run numerous scans with NOD32 & Malwarebytes, but nothing shows up. I have also run registry cleaners to no avail.

Thank you.

Fixed - found the culprit/s.

2011-05-25 00:16:54 0 ----a-w- c:\windows\Xtivitegigusob.bin

^Renamed it to Xtivitegigusob.old

^Found a script file "_cfg.js" inside subfolder "content" of folder "Chrome"; renamed it to ".old". In the same folder was overlay.xu; also renamed to ".old".

No more redirects. I deleted some leftover McAfee services listed in the DDS log; the software was deleted a while back. THANKS.

It appears that this issue is resolved, therefore I am closing the topic. If that is not the case and you need or wish to continue with this topic, please send me or any Moderator a Personal Message (PM) that you would like this topic re-opened.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
