Hi there,


I am hoping you can help. We have a Windows 7 machine that keeps redirecting search results to malicious websites. I have run a few virus scanners including TDSS which have all come back clean.


Any Advice would be appreciated. I have also opened another thread for a Windows XP machine experiencing exactly the same problem. I am willing to rerun scans and post logs if need be.

For this machine I think we should get a deeper look. Please follow this Preparation Guide and post in a new topic.
Let me know if all went well.
