I got the happili redirect sometimes when searching on Google. I have an xp computer. I tried various combinations of Malwarebytes, Tdsskiller, rkill, Kaspersky Virus Removal, safe mode, etc. and couldn't find any malware. The problem is, the redirect would be quite random, and I thought I got rid of the virus, only to find after 100s of Google searches, the redirect would appear again. So I can't be sure if I ever get rid of the virus. At any rate, I was using Firefox 8.01. I uninstalled that and installed an older version of Firefox, 3.6. I've done a couple 100 Google searches with no redirect. Maybe the redirect is gone, maybe on the 300th Google search, I will be redirected to happili.
But, if someone is having a redirect problem and virus scanners don't find any problem, one might try uninstalling Firefox ( and all personal settings and then deleting the remaining Firefox folder in Program files) and install a much older version and see what happens.

In FireFox it may be the Add ons/Plugins. try disabling them one at a time and see which one was at fault.
