I have an issue with my browser redirecting for the last couple weeks. It happens maybe once out of every dozen or so links I try to follow on Google and most of the time I can back out and reselect the link, and it won't be redirected. When it is redirected it first reads along the lines of "click.livesearchnow.com" in the url bar then goes to a web search engine, "scour," where the address starts w/ what appears to be an IP address.
I run Windows 7... use Firefox 99% of the time, issue persists in IE and Chrome.
Cleared cookies... no avail
Checked LAN settings... settings as should be
Checked all the processes running in the Windows Task Manager and looked at my list of installed programs... nothing suspicious as far as I know
Checked host file... as should be
Ran Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, SUPERAntiSpyware, TDSKiller, and HitmanPro... no avail
I know this is an issue that can vary in solution for everyone. If anyone could assist me in solving this problem, I would be very grateful then if anyone could suggest how to avoid contracting this type of "virus," or whatever it may be termed, I would appreciate that as well as this is not the first time it has happened but the first time I can't remedy it. I'll run whatever tests and post results ASAP.
Thanks so much!
