Like the rest of the forum, my links are being hijacked and redirected. In any google search, it will redirect me to often random, harmless sites like Groupon, but often does send me to obvious phishing or malware websites. I've run scans with MacAfee and Norton with nothing detected. Malware Bytes returned a "no infected files found" but I am posting all requested information from MBAM, GMER and DDS in the posts to follow. My computer is also unbearably sluggish, and I found several instances of IEXPLORE.EXE running, using most of my system memory. I quarantined those files, but I'm still experiencing sluggishness. A few days ago, I did have a virus which caused my computer to go black on the desktop, hid ALL of the files on my computer, disabled the Task Manager and asked if I wanted to install a scanning program. I was able to remove that virus, but I'm not sure if maybe the two are at all related.
