Greetings
Not sure if I am infected or just paranoid
I have viewed this site many times and have always gotten assistance just by reading other folks unfortunate issues and the suggested fixes.
I have not seen this yet so I am posting my own question for assitance. I use Yahoo as my home page ... just the yahoo.com site. Now when I open the home page it is not just yahoo.com but I am redirected to yahoo.com/?r128=1340506777 (did not post the entire link in case it is malicious). The last number of the web address
changes each time I open a new window. I have Norton 360 and Malwaye bytes and they do not find anything. Scanned both in normal and safe mode and they do not find anything. Is this something to be concerned with?? Nothing else on my computer appears to be wrong. Does not run slow or redirect anywhere else. I dont appear to have any other issues but you can never be to sure. I do my banking online and want to be sure that I am safe

Can anyone offer suggestiosn?

Thank you in advance for your assistance

Hello and welcome,appears we will need a deeper look. Please go here....Preparation Guide ,do steps 6-9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9 which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
If GMER won't run (it may not on a 64 bit system) skip it and move on.

Let me know if that went well.

Hello

I followed the instructions and will post the results on the new topic per the instructions
When I did the GMER scan it came back empty and stated no modifications were done (I believe that was the terminology) ALTHOUGH I could not check or uncheck many of the options such as SYSTEM SECTION DEVICES MODLES PROCESSES THREADS THREADS LIBRARIES.They were grayed out and I could not check them. What was already checked was SERVICES REGISTRY FILES C:/ and ADS

Thoughts?

If this is a Win 7 or 64 bit machine it may have difficulty. Just Skip GMER and state that it would not run properly.
