Hello, newbie with a nuisance, I picked up a google redirect, spent some time looking for software (currently running clamwin and malwarebytes) for a fix and finding win2k stuff is getting tough and no I cant afford to upgrade at the moment. Tigzy suggested I post here. The problem is after a few Google searches in firefox I get a redirect from click.livesearch.com to random sites. I don't have any problem on yahoo or bing just on google. No other issues noted although I may be getting impatient but it seems my laptop in generally is running slower than it used to and the chip fan seems to run more. I'm running an IBM A31p 2.0 GHZ 2meg ram original Win2k SP4 with all the available updates, Firefox 12. The only thing I notice funny in an OTL search is a filed call "Apple computer" but when I search for it, I cant find it. C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Apple Computer. When I look for it I can get to the Administrator level but no local settings. My local settings is actually under the WINNT file. I've attached a bunch of scan stuff. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Hello, and sorry for the delay.

Can you please tell me if you have these problems only in firefox, or also in Internet explorer? If only in Firefox, please click Start > Programs > Mozilla firefox and select the option firefox (safe mode) if present and let me know if that redirects also.

regards, Elise

I have not noticed it under IE although I don't use IE very often. I am trying safe mode in Firefox at the moment. It almost seems the longer I keep Firefox open then more often I will see a redirect and once I start to get redirects if I close Firefox and then reopen, I do not get redirects again for quite awhile. I have Firefox set to dump everything when I close it.

Could you please test for me if the same problem occurs also in Internet Explorer?
In the mean time I'll see what I can find out about that file, the link works fine. :)
