I believe I have fallen victim to the redirect virus. Same MO; takes me to obscure sites when I click a link in the search results, after several tries it will take me to the correct site. Also, today IE started freezing when I attempted to open an additional tab. I have Window's vista business.

I have followed the directions here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic419643.html/page__p__2413954__hl__google+redirect+virus__fromsearch__1#entry2413954

And can post the Logs, but thought I would wait for direction first. I am very inept when it comes to virus protection and procedure for removal. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Edit: Moved topic from Vista to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

Please do not use someone else's topic...as a guide to what should be done.

One of the BC Staff personnel will request any logs which might be helpful :).
