  1. right so there's probably a million post like this already but im going to put down my info to make sure.

    Ok, the problem is when i Google search with Firefox most of the suggestions will redirect to some random site, ranging from adult sites to sites that don't even work, and its getting really annoying.

    Amazingly i already have Hijackthis so i did a scan and this is the log...btw i dont understand hijackthis at all so if i post unnecessary information my apologies.

    The symptoms you report are a strong indication of infection.

    I would strongly recommend going to the virus and malware removal board,
    read the stickies, and run the eight steps.
    Be diligent to follow the steps exactly.

    If you find infections during the eight steps, post your logs in a new thread there,
    and hopefully one of the malware helpers will be able to help you get cleaned up.
