Hi this is my first post here but I was hoping I could find some help. Every time I go to yahoo.com or google.com, my browser goes to search me up and the search toping is already put in to find porn. I know its kinda funny but I have tried all kinds of antispyware, adware, anti virus and cant get it off. Would it be in my cookies or registry? Iv deleted my cookies, ran adware spybot search and destroy and a couple of antivirus multiple times, also they are all updated........I tried searching for help but I cant find anything. If anyone can help me I would greatly appreciate it.

Welcome kcchiefsno1

There are many types of malware that will cause search redirects but without knowing which one we are dealing with its difficult to provide a specific fix. Lets start by doing the following:

If your using WIN XP or 2000, download and scan with Ewido Anti-Malware v3.5
Ewido Install and Scan Instructions

Download and scan with Ad-Aware SE Personal. Setup & Configure as shown here.

Download and scan with Spybot S&D 1.4. Setup & Configure as shown here.
[DO NOT choose the option to install TeaTimer]
Note: If you encounter any error messages while downloading the updates, manually download them from here.

Perform these online Virus scans:
[Watch the Address bar in IE. You may receive alerts that "This site might require the following ActiveX control...Click here to install...". Click on that alert and then Click Install ActiveX component]

Trend Micro Housecall Scan
Panda ActiveScan [ActiveScan Panda does not remove adware/spyware but will autoclean for viruses & worms.]
a-squared Web Malware Scanner

If your still having problems afterwards, then I suggest you read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log.

When you have done that, post a log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, not here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts.
