I posted this in the wrong forum first so I thought I might get better luck here.

My browser has been hijacked and I keep getting redirected to random sites.

I have had P2P programs installed before and like many others have been on certain sites that may be more likely to infect my computer.
I have uninstalled all P2P programs and am "trying" to avoid any bad sites. (I am a man after all) :wink:

I've run Malwarebytes scan. Emsisoft Scan and Microsoft' Malicious removal tool thingy but still not having any luck.

Can provide a Hijack this log if needed.

Thanks in advance.

Is that the log from the scan you mentioned in your first post?

Regardless, that is an old version of MalwareBytes.

Database version: 7469


Current version is: 7513

Please update MalwareBytes, run a new scan, and post the new log.

Hello,

MBAM didn't flag anything.

You say that you aren't experiencing the issue now?

Did you reboot between the first MBAM scan and this one?

Did the redirects stop after the reboot if you did?

Yes I did reboot between the scans and I have yet to have any redirects. I will give it another 24hrs, if no problems then I shall assume all is well.

Thanks
