Hello, sirs.
for last few weeks every time i use google and click on the preferred link i get redirected to some junk sites ( casinocaesar.com, q-find.com, hrena.com,) this only happens twice or three times and if i keep trying to reach the site several times it gets the right one. i use the avast!4.7 antivirus and untill now used lawasoft pro spyware, right now i am running superantispyware. by now nothing came up. btw when i use firefox browser nothing like that happenes, it only happens in the IE.
i looked at some solutions they gave for same problem on different sites and there also was one on BC. the problem is that the file that apperently causes the problem and appears in the X:\windows\system32 has a different name in each case. i am not that good with computers to know which file does and which doesn't belong to the OS.
i would appreciate some guidance and help.

I think you should let one of the bleeping computer experts take a look at this machine. Please download and install Hijack This.

Follow the directions in the Preparation Guide.

Once you have done that , please post your hijack this log here.

thanks for your answer.
actually i didn't have to go all the way. the only thing i did was download ad-aware 2007 and it took care of the problem. no more junk redirections (and some other stuff) which the previous version of ad-aware could not find.
thanks again.

Great, however, what you eliminated may just be the tip of the iceberg, I would recommend that you complete the preparation guide instructions. Only one anti malware scan is not enough.
