Hi and thanks in advance for your help. I am running Windows Vista. I use Firefox to get to the Internet and I have Blue Coat k9 for filtering. I run Malwarebytes and Defender on a regular basis and have recently done an EasyCleaner on my registry. It seems to help for about 24 hours and then goes back to redirecting with nothing being found until days later. I am being redirected to star feeds mixer, monster.com, and yellow pages mostly. Also, on 90% of my attempts at going to a site, K9 pops up and says it is blocked because of suspicion and then when I hit the back button I get there. I have uninstalled and reinstalled K9 as well. Over the last 4 or 5 days now, the computer has been shutting down and saying something about a mini dump (that sounds nasty) and giving me a blue screen. I don't know if that's related. Oh and I have been getting messages from my Internet provider saying there is unually high traffic on my ? I forgot to write it down. IEP maybe? I have a password on my wireless router.

I just got this message from K9 that this site is blocked, but I wasn't trying to go there in the first place.

I'm sure one of the helpers here will be able to assist you more than I can but in the meantime I have a few suggestions...

First, it never hurts to scan your machine with more than one type of anti-spyware program. That being said however, you NEVER want to have more than one anit-virus program as then can conflict with each other and leave you unprotected. My suggestion would be since you already have malwarebytes installed, and assuming that its the free version, to open it and click the update tab and verify that you have the latest definitions. Also follow this link and run SuperAntiSpyware. This is their portable edition so it doesn't need to be installed. It runs as a self contained package.

SuperAntiSpyware Portable Scanner

You also may want to check your machine for any Rootkits that may be present, my suggestion is TDSSKiller from Kaspersky. You can find it at this link...

Hope that helps resolve your issue and again I'm sure that the helpers on this site will be able to assist you further. Good Luck.

Thanks, LCS. I'll try those things. I don't know if what's on my computer caused it, but I posted my question 7 times because it kept saying bad request. I never knew it was posting and I don't see a way to delete the extra posts. Argg!
