Confession time. (Background history) I had an old AcdSee 5 Trial program that I only recently installed. It said it would expire in 30 days unless I bought it, so tried to do that, but the link didn't work. So, when Googling I found a 'crack' on offer. (Yes I know - Duh!) I thought with Bit Defender on guard checking every file that it would be safe. Since then all Google search links are being redirected to dubious sites. Looking at other posts and following some of the advice this seems to be a common phenomenon, and very intractable. It affects both Firefox, which I use. Also IE. System Restore cannot restore from any previous date. I've done scans with Bit Defender, SuperAntispyware, Malwarebytes and Combofix. And used CCleaner, Advanced SystemCare and HijackThis. (Logs enclosed.) Most contents of 'My Documents' are on an external disk, normally disconnected. Does anyone know the answer to this without me having to re-install? Thanks in advance.
