  1. For the past few days Google search links have been redirecting to advertisment sites and they have also been randomly popping up when browsing (firefox).

    Have followed the "8 Steps".

    Hi and welcome to TechSpot forums :).

    ====

    You need to update MBA-M and run it again please. Post it's log after a reboot.

    =============

    Please download GooredFix from one of the locations below and save it to your Desktop
    Download Mirror #1
    Download Mirror #2
    • Ensure all Firefox windows are closed.
    • To run the tool, double-click it (XP), or right-click and select Run As Administrator (Vista).
    • When prompted to run the scan, click Yes.
    • GooredFix will check for infections, and then a log will appear. Please post the contents of that log in your next reply (it can also be found on your desktop, called GooredFix.txt).
