Hello bleepingcomputer.com computer expert! I'm new to the site, so I apologize if I have posted in the wrong forum or have done something I shouldn't.

I have a problem using Google Search. Every time I try to perform a Google search, I get redirected to this webpage: http://developer.yahoo.com/yql/console/

I have run Norton 360, Malwarebytes, Zone Alarm, Spybot SD-Resident, TDSS killer and CC cleaner to no avail. Nothing seems to have worked.

Also I must admit that I did run Combofix previously (I was unaware at the time that I should not run the program unless instructed to do so). Combofix seemed to have stopped the virus, but recently I tried performing a Google search and the same problem occurred (I get redirected to the developer yahoo url address).

If you can provide me with any assistance on how to fix this problem I would be immensely appreciative!

Since you ran Combofix....

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting at Step 6. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues, what you have done to resolve them, and a link to this topic.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

It would be helpful if you post a note here once you have completed the steps in the guide and have started your topic in malware removal. Good luck and be patient.

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