HJT Log Analysis

By Leonheart
Jun 13, 2011
  1. Hi guys,

    I am hoping that I could get some help with some issues I am having. I believe I have what people are calling a Browser jacker. I use Firefox and when I use a engine search (Google) when I click on the results my browser jumps and re-directs it's self. As of today I haven't been able to keep Firefox open for more than a few minutes without crashing, IE crashes even quicker. I have been running scans on all my virus software, AVG, Spy bot and Ad-aware but I am getting no results, I have attached my HJT Log in an attempt to have someone with higher understanding help me.

    All my problems started a few weeks ago when my computer crashed suddenly and I had to do a clean wipe of my hard drive, I really don't want to do it again. I have updated all my drivers and updates. If there is any more information you need please let me know.

    Thanks in advance
