I have a works laptop that I has a problem with both Firefox and IE.
The problem is that when an web address is entered incorrectly into the address bar it redirects to www.boardgames.co.uk
It appears that it redirects there if the address is not a fqdn
eg www.abc.com is okay, abc is not
Entering a correct URL there is no problem, even when autocomplete/search is off.
I have followed many of the 'How-tos' and completed all steps from safe mode.
Software I have ran includes:
Super Anti Spyware
Emisoft Emeergency kit
Malwarebytes Anti rootkit
Microsoft Malicious removal tool
Microsoft Security scan
farbar recovery scan tool
Kapersky Pure 3 anti virus
None of which have returned any real kind of infection nor managed to cure it.
The browsers are not particually running slow and this is the only problem that he stumbled upon.
However it is on my bosses laptop therefore he thinks its the end of the world.
I get the laptop back later, any help or pointers would be greatly appreciated.
