  1. I am having problems with search results being redirected to unwanted sites. I have tried the 8 steps prior to posting this, but none of the two scan tools before hjt would work. I have included the log file from hjt. Any help greatly appreciated.
    Thank You in advance

    Hello gopper

    Please download combofix here ->
    ComboFix
    Before Saving it to Desktop, please rename it to 123.com to stop malware from disabling it.

    Now, please make sure no other programs are running, close all other windows.

    Please double click on the file you downloaded. Follow the onscreen prompts to start the scan.
    Once the scanning process has started please DO NOT click on the Combofix window or attempt to use your computer as this can cause the scanning process to stall.
    It may take a while to complete scanning and this is normal.

    You will be disconnected from the internet and your desktop icons/toolbars will disappear during scanning, do not worry, this is normal and it will be restored after
    scanning has completed.

    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
