  1. I have run MalwareBytes (ok) however in running DDS I get the message "DDS is not meant to run in 'Compatability Mode'. The program shall now exit".
    Not sure how to proceed from here.

    First, Broni, happy to have you assisting me again. About two years ago you guided me thru to a successful solution to a vexing URL redirect virus. Thanks again.

    Second, the indications of a problem that I've been getting (intermittently, I'm afraid) are as follows (using Firefox 34.0.5):
    - Clicking on a link on an existing page can result in the creation, in addition to the requested page, another tab with a URL showing the '' URL.
    - I've also observed the page that I wanted showing up with an added and unwanted left margin blocking about 10-15% of the screen. Showing either stupidity or chutzpah, the "" URL is shown at the top of the offending margin.
    - My initial notice that I had been hit by the virus was the fact that my default search engine had been changed from Google to Yahoo.

    I apologize for not including the MBAM log.
    Any ideas on why I rec'd the strange DDS msg?
    Here's the MBAM log:
