Hey, everyone, first post, so be easy :)

Anyways recently, whenever I click on a link on Google, I get redirected to random pages. So I tried malware bytes, TDSSKiller, IOBit Malware Fighter, and nada. But I know something is messing up my system. You know when you have that feeling that your rig isn't running 100%? Yeah, I'm getting a heap of that. But I digress, So I heard you guys were the best at solving problems, so here I am.

Right, now on to business, if there is a way to fix this problem, I will be really grateful to whoever helps me out.

Thanks :)

P.S. I haven't tested with Firefox or IE, so I don't know if its a browser problem or something else.

Heya, I'm also a new user... but I think I might be able to help you out.

First, check and see if you get the same issue with any other browsers.

Also, when you ran your virus scans, did you get any results at all? Were you in safemode?

Check your internet connections through control panel->internet options. In the connections tab click LAN settings (assuming you're using an always-on connection) and be sure "Automatically detect settings" is checked and that there is no proxy being used.

Hope to hear back soon.

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic420990.html you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the MRT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the MRT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the MRT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.
