[Unresolved] A porn-based site of a changing name appears during google search

By muitoboa

  1. In the last few days, an irritating web-site that changes its name constantly appears whenever I do a Google search. It seems to be linked to whatever choice I make in google, as after I click my choice it always goes to this site. How do I remove this site. It advertises porn and I don't want to see it! I use Firefox and have run defenderPro. Sometimes the site appears as fast-loans.org., sometimes as casinocaesar.com etc

    looks like you got spyware...download a spyware removal program like avg antispyware and do a scan..you should find couple of results
    they seem to be overrated - the defender pro
    best of luck

    Did what you suggested, CoolWeb, then Ad-Aware, then Spybots, but the annoying ad-ware is still there unfortunately. Any other suggestions?
