Whenever I try to search for something and then I click the link it'll redirect me to another search engine site or it'll just be a blank page. When I hit the back button it'll redirect me to the same thing. It has been like this for months and I've tried searching for the problem but nothing seems to be working.

I've tried Ad-Aware, Malwarebytes and Hitman Pro.

I don't know much about computers but mine is using Windows 7.

Any help is much appreciated, thank you.

Welcome to Bleeping Computer,
Did MalwareBytes find any infections?

Reset your Hosts file here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/972034

After that tell me if you are still getting redirects.

Very good! Let's run another scan as a double check.

I'd like us to scan your machine with ESET OnlineScan
  • Hold down Control and click on this link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
    • Click on esetsmartinstaller_enu.exe to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
    • Double click on the Posted Image
      icon on your desktop.
  • Check "YES, I accept the Terms of Use."
  • Click the Start button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Under scan settings, check "Scan Archives" and "Remove found threats"
  • Click Advanced settings and select the following:
    • Scan potentially unwanted applications
    • Scan for potentially unsafe applications
    • Enable Anti-Stealth technology
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  • When the scan completes, click List Threats
  • Click Export, and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  • Click the Back button.
  • Click the Finish button.

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

—George Bernard Shaw
