Please help. My computer has Windows XP. I use Mozilla Firefox for internet browsing. Almost every link I click on re-directs me to an ad or different search engine. Lately, the computer has begun running noticeably slower and usually shuts off automatically while I'm in the middle of something. This happens when the power cord is plugged in. Any help is appreciated.

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

Welcome aboard Posted Image

Does the redirection happen in IE as well?

Please download GooredFix from one of the locations below and save it to your Desktop
Download Mirror #1
Download Mirror #2
  • Ensure all Firefox windows are closed.
  • To run the tool, double-click it (XP), or right-click and select Run As Administrator (Vista).
  • When prompted to run the scan, click Yes.
  • GooredFix will check for infections, and then a log will appear. Please post the contents of that log in your next reply (it can also be found on your desktop, called GooredFix.txt).

Broni,

Thanks for your reply. I haven't noticed redirects using IE, but I rarely use it...mostly Firefox.

Here is the Gooredfix log:
