Hi, ever since yesterday evening around 5pm GMT, whenever I typed a url that doesn't exist, Firefox began redirecting me to an affiliate link from 404bucks i.e.
"hxxp://domainsa.com/landing/?affId=IywxMjI&domainname=[ENTER DOMAIN NAME OF DESIRED URL]."
It also redirects whenever I type "404bucks" or "domainsa" anywhere else on FFox, or whenever I'm reading a page that mentions the two words.
*NB: The problem doesnn't occur on Opera, Chrome or IE. Nor does it affect my other computers with Windows 7 x64 Biz/XP Pro x32
Vista Business x64 SP2, i7.
Toolbars enabled: Google Toolbar & Zynga Facebook Game Toolbar (I use this to play facebook games)
I performed a system restore to 3 days back, but it didn't resolve the issue.
Lavasoft Adaware, Comodo virus scan didn't find anything.
My free version of Spyware Doctor found and cleaned 6 entries of Adware.Hotbar and some other entries of 'Browser Hijacking virus', yet the problem persists.
I installed the PCTools defender toolbar (provided by PCtools SpyDoctor update) and whwnever i type anything in there it uses a search index known as hxxp://search.feedandme.com/ although there are no redirects
Currently there are only about 2 threads on the internet regarding a 404bucks redirect virus, none of which offer a solution.
I've attached my HijackThis Report
What can I do?
