To keep it short, problem began when my computer auto-updated itself & installed IE7. IE7 promptly rendered MusicMatch Jukebox useless. I was unable to salvage it even after uninstalling 7. Trialed Yahoo MusicMatch Jukebox as a replacement. It secretly installed several programs which created several adware issues included being redirected to Online-Security-Center.com. Removing said programs solved all problems except the redirects. Hopefully someone has a solution (besides a hand-grenade).

I myself much prefer the sledgehammer method, much more soothing and more stress relief, so go get one of those and keep it handy!

have you tried doing adware/spyware removal, Like, attempted to run scans and bleep, If so, what came up, if anything, and did you remove it

how often does this problem occur, and is it only when specific sites are drawn up

etc

Welcome to BC emuluze :thumbsup:

I suggest you follow the directions in this guide. Then create an HJT log, you will find the directions in the guide.

Create a new topic in this forum, not here and give it a good descriptive title. Briefly summarize what the problems are, what you have done to try to solve it, and what worked and didn't work and paste in your HJT log.

After you post your log, DO NOT make any further changes to your computer: deleting files, editing the registry, using special fix tools, installing or uninstalling software etc. as this will make it more difficult for the HJT team to help you.

Please be patient as the HJT team is very busy. DO NOT bump your log as the team may think that someone is already helping you. If you have not had a response in five days, add a response to the five days no response topic and paste in the link to your thread.

As for the jukebox, after you are disinfected take a look at the programs listed under audio and video in this topic: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic3616.html

Sorry to take so long to get back. I had already done the AdAware/ Spybot thing, sorry I didn't mention it (oops)! neither one was able to resolve the redirect problem. I stumbled across the solution while cleaning out some old files I no longer need. Another Yahoo program that did not show up in the Add/Remove program list. "Yahoo Briefcase". After deleting that, the redirects went away! Whatever it was, it attached itself to anything Yahoo. Now I really can say YAHOO!! Thanks for the help! It was great advice!
