Having unusual problem that when perform a search using either yahoo or google that another program appears to redo the search and redirect the webpages ("Jump" comes up during the redirect) when try to select a found site to visit. Does not happen any other time. Never directs to same site or type of sites. Examples are redirecting to e-bay or thestreet. Have scanned computer using all recommended measures and still a problem. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Hi,

Please don't attach logs, but copy and paste them in your thread instead.

I see you have Viewpoint installed...
Viewpoint Manager is considered as foistware instead of malware since it is installed without users approval but doesn't spy or do anything "bad". This will change from what we know in 2006 read this article: http://www.clickz.com/news/article.php/3561546
I suggest you remove the program now. Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and remove the following programs if present.
  • Viewpoint
  • Viewpoint Manager
  • Viewpoint Media Player
Then, * Please download FixwareOut from the following site:
http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/lonny/Fixwareout.exe

Save it to your desktop and run it. Click Next, then Install, make sure "Run fixit" is checked and click Finish.
The fix will begin; follow the prompts. If your firewall gives an alert, (because this tool will download an additional file from the internet), please don't let your firewall block it, but allow it instead.
Then you will be asked to reboot your computer; please do so. Your system may take longer than usual to load; this is normal.

Once the desktop loads please post the text that will open (report.txt) and a new Hijackthis log.
