as the computer I am working on is fairly new and empty, I tried a system restore and that failed due to an unknown error. I tried a different restore point and the same thing happened.

I built this computer couple days ago and it is transferring me to  htxxtp://search.yahoo.com/?type=714647&fr=spigot-yhp-ch


I probably contracted this virus from downloading software via forums to resolve a hard drive malfunction.

Hi looks like there is some spigot malware on here. This is a bit tricky to get out and we need a deeper look.

Please follow this Preparation Guide, do steps 6,7 and 8 and post in a new topic. Title it Spigot Malware.
Let me know if all went well.
