  1. I've just started having problems in Windows Vista. Although I am not using Internet Explorer, I keep on getting odd pop ups randomly springing up every 3 minutes or so. Everytime it states that Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage.

    Then whilst using Firefox, I attempt to view sites from Google (recently a lot of spyware killer sites) and I keep getting redirected onto sites I have not asked for.

    Looking around, it suggests that I havea Browser Hijackand I have tried running Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware, which has found something and stopped it. However, I'm still getting the same problems.

    I've run HijackThis and have attached the log.
