Like many other BleepingComputer users, my computer redirects to advertising sites and other spam pages every time I click on a Google search result. The problem started in Internet Explorer. I started using Mozilla and after about 2 weeks, the problem happened on that browser, too. I saw a post on CNET about asking for help on this forum and ultimately running the ComboFix program. I would really appreciate some help in getting rid of this virus!

Thank you,

How did the TDSSKiller scan work out?
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
