Not sure what to make of this. I have a new computer never downloaded more than my free malwarebytes and a couple other free legit tools.

 

Tried to go to a website got redirected with that time warner search engine but it only has done it on one site that i think i may have typed in wrong. anyway looked up how to get rid of it. fairly simple rules uninstall from programs reset browsers. clean out reg. except when i scan the computer nothing. and when i look for program nothing. but if i go to a particurlar site and it pops up. then i see the search engine in my browsers list of search engines. delete it and i'm alright. 

 

My question is should i be worried that malwarebytes is not working properly or just calk it up to know the name of the site before trying to go to it. i also tried junkware removal tool and found nothing. 

 

thanks for anyones input in this matter

What else did you download to this computer?

 

What website are you getting the redirect on?

 

Some legitimate downloads will have third party software embedded in it.  Unless you choose to do a custom installation these third party programs will automatically be included in the installation.  By using the custom installation you have the opportunity to remove the check mark indicating it is to be installed, or will have the option to decline the software.  This may be how this software wound up on your computer.

 

Please download AdwCleaner and run it.
 
An image like the one below will open, click on Scan.
 
adwcleaner11_zps48314883.png
 
Once the search is complete a list of the pending items will be displayed.  If you see any which you do not want removed, remove the check mark next to it.  
 
Click on Clean to remove the selected items.  If you have any questions about any items in the list please copy and paste the list in your topic so we can review it.  
 
You will receive a message telling you that all programs will be close so that the infections can be removed.  Click on Ok.
 
When the cleaning process is complete a log of what was removed will be presented.  Please copy and the paste this log in your next post.

thanks for your help. all i have is a question. is this a stand alone program like some others i have because i have malwarebytes superanti spyware and junkware removal tool as well as bit defender and as long as its stand alone. i will ad it to my arsonal because i dont want something to start conflicting.

 

I did run it and all it cleaned was an old profile from firefox because i had it's beta browser aurora in the computer but it kept glitching on video playback so i uninstalled it and put in regular firefox. 

 

i don't know the computer is very clean kids don't use it. and i'm very careful and select and also know that i have to custom install programs in order not to get anything bundled with them.

 

appreciate your help in this matter anyway thank you

Are you using Bing as your search engine?

I have seen the Time Warner redirect here before as well I believe it is because their DNS is not able to resolve a site or link to IP. In the past I have added one of the Google DNS numbers to help resolve the names better. 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 for IPv4, and/or 2001:4860:4860::8888 and 2001:4860:4860::8844, for IPv6 access.

That is why I was asking if they are using Bing as their search engine.  With Bing, if the address isn't valid or mistyped if will open the Time Warner search engine.

I do not have Bing as a search engine in any of my browsers.  I refuse to have Bing.  Chrome and Comodo obviously have google; Firefox and IE have yahoo.
