wassop bleepingcomp,
So I seem to have the same search engine redirect issue as many others, except that malwarebytes, tsskiller, and symantec have all failed to detect any problems on my computer besides a few tracking cookies. Probably 1 in every 5 google search results I click will redirect to an unrelated ad site, and symantec will block traffic from some of them. Still have the problem!

My other problem is slightly harder to describe; in a nutshell, there seems to be a lot of crazy ad-related activity going on whenever I browse the web. When I go from page to page, I can see a lot of information and a bunch of different links loading in the bottom left hand corner of firefox. The websites will range from twitter to doubleclick.net to basically jibberish like fg.dsgs.ngfdj or something like that. Definitely not supposed to be happening when I'm just loading facebook. It (or something else, who knows) is also potentially slowing my computer down a bit, but not substantially.

What to do? Help a sista out!
