  1. Whenever I click on a link in Google, I get redirected to another site, and my browser (Firefox) seems to just shut itself off as soon as I get redirected. I swear that my internet's gotten slower as well. Anyways, I've posted a few logs.

    Thanks in advance for any help. :stickout:

    Hello HermanSantos

    Download the Norton Removal Tool (SymNRT) to your Desktop.
    http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2005033108162039

    Once downloaded please close ALL open browsers, also save any work because this may require a restart.

    Go to your desktop and double click on the removal tool and then click Setup.
    Once open Click Next
    Accept the license agreement and click Next
    Type in the letters/numbers that you see into the text box then click Next.
    Then click Next and the tool will start running.
    Once finished restart the PC and run the tool again to ensure everything has been removed.
    Delete Nortonremoval tool from your Desktop.


    Please download Combofix:
    http://subs.geekstogo.com/ComboFix.exe

    And save to the desktop.

    Close all other browser windows.

    Please connect all your external hard drive/flash drive before running Combofix, if you have any

    Double-click on the combofix icon found on your desktop.

    Please note, that once you start combofix you should not click anywhere on the combofix window as it can cause the program to stall. In fact, when combofix is running, do not touch your computer at all and just take a break as it may take a while for it to complete.

    Combofix will create a logfile and display it after your computer has rebooted. Usually located in c:\combofix.txt, please attach it to your next post

    Thank you for the response, Touch. I've downloaded the Norton Removal Tool, ran it twice, then restarted my computer. Afterwards, I downloaded ComboFix and ran it, making sure to close my browsers and not really touch the computer. My Combofix log is attached below.

    Open notepad and copy/paste the text in the quotebox below into it:
    Name the file as CFScript
    and Save it on the desktop

    Once saved, refering to the picture above, drag CFScript.txt into ComboFix.exe.

    Combofix will create a logfile and display it after your computer has rebooted. Usually located in c:\combofix.txt, please attach it to your next post

    Note:
    Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running. That may cause it to stall.
