  1. Hi there. I've been unable to download updates for my antivirus software and have found my Google search links being redirected. Not sure how long this has been going on - I took an embarrassingly long time to realise something was wrong.

    I've followed the 8-step prelim. removal instructions to the best of my ability, and will attach the three log files to this post

    (I'm on a Windows XP laptop, browsing with Firefox* (with a variety of add-ons) and used AVG free until it stopped updating)

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    *Just realised that my Firefox has been crashing, which I'd assumed was a problem with the latest update, but may be another symptom...
