Hello,

I had a hard drive diagnostic virus that generated fake warnings, fake hard disk scanner and then offered a solution for only $20 etc. I followed the bleeping computer removal guide which worked. My system is working again almost as good as new. However, I've still got a browser redirect (not just google any engine) and general performance seems slower than usual. The hard disk diagnostic and the browser redirect started at the same time so I have assumed they're related but obviously might not be.

Internet explorer seems to be affected more than firefox. It's the same as many other posts. You do a search, the results come up as normal but if you click a link the browser redirects to random unrelated websites. Also the websites it diverts to ar enot trying to sell anything, most of them are redundant or no longer in use.

I can stop the redirects from occurring either by pushing up the security settings as high as possible (which obviously causes some problems with most web sites) or by frantically clicking a search result link which eventually gets past the redirect. Also selecting the cached version of a web page bypasses the redirect. Once you've made it to the site you wanted it seems ok, although the increased security means that just about any content is blocked, so you have to drop the security a little and then things start to go wrong again.

So far Spyware doctor, Kaspersky and Malwarebytes haven't picked anything up (apart from the initial hard drive diagnostic trojan)

Any advice would be greatly received, here is my DDS log:
