  1. Hello
    I keep getting redirected when using search engines such as google or yahoo. I recently removed Antivirus XP 2008 and have followed all of your instructions on preliminary removal of viruses and the problems seem to have subsided for now. Below I have attached the 3 logs requested. Please Help!!!!
    Thanks

    Hi :

    The Log from the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware program you posted says
    "No action taken", so I assume what was detected was not properly dealt with !?
    Run a "Full Scan" again and when the program "finishes", then :
    1) click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
    2) Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.

    Since you appear to be using AVG as your antiVIRUS program AND there are
    Symantec "Items" in your HijackThis log, I recommend you run the
    "Norton Removal Tool" that is available at several Sites .

    Edit : Noticed you have ZA's misnamed "Spy Blocker" on your computer; this is nothing more than the Adware "ask.com" toolbar . You should seriously consider
    getting rid of it after reading the very reliable Info at http://securitygarden.blogspot.com/2...zonealarm.html .

    I would reset IE to its default settings.

    IE7

    Open IE > Click Tools Menu > Select Internet Options > Select the Advance Tab > Click reset Button.

    IE6


    Tools > Internet Options > Programs tab > Click reset web Settings.

    Download, install, configure and run Ccleaner. This will Clear your temp files, where some unwanted stuff could be hiding. Ccleaner link download the latest version : http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/
