    Hi there -
    I hope someone can help.
    I keep getting redirected on my Google searches. I search for something and get a list of Google results but when I click on a link I get redirected to a different page, often another search page such as yahoo of findstuff.com. This always appears in a separate window. If I close the window and click on the link again a new window opens but this time I am taken to the correct linked page.
    I have tried running Spybot, Adaware and Avast anti-virus/malware removal programs but they are unable to find anything.

    I have attached the Hijackthis log in the hope that it will shed some light on the problem and suggest a solution.

    Ignore this -
    I have System Mechanic on my PC. I ran it the other day and I had a 6-month old copy of my registry backed up. I re-installed this, ran a couple of virus programmes and the problem would now seem to be sorted.
