I've never posted in a forum before, so please let me know if I break ettiquete.

I have a redirect in firefox that I just can't get rid of. I've scanned with AVG 2013, SAS, S&D, Gmer, Mbam, Eset, Tdss killer, Hijack This, ComboFix and probably a few more. Searched every english speaking website to no avail and now I'm a broken man.

The most common site, but not the only one, is gossipcentre.com, but I don't have the random.exe infection most commonly attributed to it. I've also disabled almost all the add-ons and extensions in Firefox.

I won't post any logs until I'm asked but if anyone could help I'd be so greatful.

Hello and welcome. The important thing is to se the Blue text above this forum.

Try this next.

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

Thankyou for the quick response.

All add-ons and extensions have been disabled. I've just updated to java 7, but even with the old version turned off I was still getting the redirects. I'll keep an eye on it though.

Its just so random. I may go several hours without an incident, giving me a false sense of security and then it'll just kick in again.

Thanks again for your time on this.

Yeah, I've still got it. I've no extensions or plugins running, except for FLash and Java. Any help would be most appreciated.

Hi boopme.

I am relieved to know you clever people are on the case.

I've posted the new thread titled, Unknown redirect virus (gossipcentre & others)

I couldn't find an appropriate self-help guide unfortunately, but I'll be patient and wait for someone to get to my issue in time.

Again, thank you all for your expert time and a very merry xmas!
