Search engine links being hijacked

  1. Hi. I believe I have malware on my system. Today, I noticed that when I click on links from various search engines, I am always redirected to some other site, mainly advertisement sites.

    I have followed the eight-step virus/malware removal process posted here; however, I am still experiencing the link redirect problem.

    Please help. I have attached the three logs you requested.

    Thank you for this terrific service.

    Pretty sure under infection, Quick Scan is Not the best option ;)

    Please open HijackThis run a scan, and tick the following entries
    Then select Fix all, confirming any Internet browser is closed first

    Then run another Malwarebytes scan (update it first) Then run a full scan

    I'd say, you'll be mostly ok at that point :)
