First, thank you all very much.  You've helped me in the past!


Running Windows 7 Enterprise, own the commercial version of ESET which for the last couple of years has done a great job.  But, recently I had started getting re-directs and did some research on how to eliminate them.  So, here's what I've done to this point:


  • CCleaner
  • MV RegClean
  • MalwareBytes
  • Tweaking.com
  • JRT
  • IExplorer
  • Hitman Pro.

After doing all of these (followed instructions on another site), the re-directs seemed to have gone away, and some web browsing activities have greatly improved, but I think I have some kind of tracker as on certain sites (like YouTube), things slow down greatly.


Just as a side bar, I have Comcast's BLAST internet package, and can get upto 180mb's of download speed.  And, games like World of Tanks, perks right along with an FPS over 100.


Kinda stuck.  Hope you guys can help!


Thanks in advance again.

Hi Dan, let's get a deeper look as you've run Reg cleaners also.... Please follow this Preparation Guide and post in a new topic.
Let me know if all went well.
