Hello everyone. My name is marco and I was wondering if someone could help me fix my moms computer. I think she has some nasty spyware or something on it because everytime I go to certain sites, the browser (internet explore) automatically closes with a "send error" message. Another thing it's been doing is like when I click a link, it randomly opens up a google search, which has nothing to do with what I just clicked. For example, when I got to this site and clicked on the Forums Tab, A new browser window opened with a google search on some college stuff, but like I said, each time it is a different search. This happens about every three links I click on or so, and is reaaallly anoying. Can anyone help me? Thank you very much ahead of time.

I suggest you post a HijackThis log for examination.
A member of the HijackThis Team will walk you through, step by step, how to disinfect your computer.

Once you post your log, don't make any changes to your system, as that could change the results of the posted log, making it more difficult to properly clean your system.


Read Preparation Guide for use before posting a HijackThis Log.
Please read, and follow, all directions carefully!!!

Then, run a log, and post it in the HijackThis forum, >at this link<.
Do not, post it in this topic.
Do not, fix anything, yet.
A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.
It may take a while to get a response, because the HJT Team are very busy. Please, be patient, as these people are volunteers. They will help you out, as soon as possible.

NOTE:
Once you have made the post, please, DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum, until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies. If you make another post, there will be 1 reply. The team member, glancing over the replies, might assume someone is already helping you out, and will not respond. So, just make your post, and let it sit there, until a team member responds. This way you will be taken care of, in the most timely manner.
