Running XP professional on a work computer. ie browser acting weird, unexpected closing, redirection to unrequested sites, closing with no "send error" message. Everything else on the computer is working well except for ie as described above and also running slow. Some websites appear to work fine.
Ran Malware-Bytes and indicated it found one item. It was - PUM.Hijack.Desktop. Selected "repair" program indicated that it did repair it successfully. Same issues continued later, scanned again and found the PUM.Hijack.Desktop again, chose repair etc.
Just experienced crazy ie activity again. Scanned again with Malware Bytes and nothing, program did not find anything abnormal. I'm sure there is something to be found!
Because it is such a pain to use ie with all of the crashing, I am typing on another computer right now, not sure what logs to post but it will be a bit difficult with limited access to the infected computers browser.
Thanks for any suggestions / help you can provide.
