    Hey all,

    I use Firefox 8.0 and have been having my Google results redirected to bogus sites. MBAM, ESET, AVG all show clean, but still the redirects continue. No unusual extensions, HJT is clean. Can't figure it out. Thought FF was supposed to be safer than IE

    Any help is appreciated.

    Dangerous tool to use unless you're very familiar with its use but glad you got it fixed.

    Ya, Ive heard it can be pretty bad, but I did a backup of my PC beforehand, and just let it run its standard course. Never understood why it is so dangerous to use in default mode
