I just got this laptop for work (new job) and the guy who worked here before me did something really bad to it before he left. All of the icons and menus on the desktop and start menu were gone. I worked on it some myself and got the icons back, but it's still redirecting when I click a google search results link. Also, it sometimes opens a new tab to pull up advertising on it's own. The sites that come up are mostly happili, askthecrew and job results of some type.
I know I'm not following the rules, but this is what I've used on it so far:
Malwarebyte's Anti-malware
Spybot s&d
some type of TDSS remover by avast
I used these tools because I read on this forum where other people who had the same problem had been told to use them.
