I am having trouble with the dreaded google searchh redirect. I've been working with the folks from PC Tools on this issue with spyware doctor however they have not been very helpful in resolving this issue. That is why I'm turning to TechSpot to see if we can get the issue resolved. I've followed the 8 step process to the best of my ability and have attached the logs. My symptoms are as follows. When I open IE sometimes the system freezes and I have to use Task Manager to close my browser and reload it. Most of the time I can get into IE on the second try. Then when I link to Google, the search window opens and I see the search box and the Google logo/picture. The strange thing is that I will not see the blue writing (menu options such as Images, videos, Maps, etc.) until I move my mouse from my tool bar down into the main screen. The next symptom is after I perform a search in Google (like "Cranberry Gastrique") I see the normal search results that I would expect. When I click on one of those links I am not taken to the page I should. The first link in my example search is a site called "BigOven" but instead I see "psychobeachparty" show up in the address bar and I actually land on a page called "findstuff" with links related to cranberries. This is just an example of what is happening because the address link and the landing page each change whenever I do the search. Also, sometimes out of dumb luck, I am actually taken to the page I want ("BigOven") in my example. I hope this is enough detail for someone to assist me as this has been a big problem. I normally use McAfee AV and firewall along with CrapCleaner, Spybot S&D and Ad-Aware. Please help.
