Hey there, this is my first post on Tech Support Guy so I apologise for requesting assistance rather than giving it. However, I have been experiencing this problem for quite a while now and it is becoming vexatious.
About 50% of the time I click on a Google link I am redirected to an alternative page. I can avoid this problem by clicking 'Cached' and then the link to the page that appears at the top of the screen after clicking Cached, but this is very tedious and is an irritating burden.

I am of the understanding, after thoroughly searching Google in an attempt to fix the problem, that each instance has its own unique solution. I will post a Hijack This log below, and if anyone is able to help it would be much appreciated.

Many thanks in advance :)

PS. I am currently running Windows XP.

Hi,

Please do the following:


Please download DDS from either of these links

LINK 1
LINK 2

and save it to your desktop.
  • Disable any script blocking protection
  • Double click dds to run the tool.
  • When done, two DDS.txt's will open.
  • Save both reports to your desktop.
---------------------------------------------------
Please include the contents of the following in your next reply:

DDS.txt
Attach.txt.


NEXT


Download GMER Rootkit Scanner from herehttp://www.gmer.net/download.phphttp://www.gmer.net/download.php to your desktop. It will be a randomly named executable.
  • Double click the exe file.
  • If it gives you a warning about rootkit activity and asks if you want to run scan...click on NO, then use the following settings for a more complete scan.


    Click the image to enlarge it
  • In the right panel, you will see several boxes that have been checked. Ensure the following are unchecked
    • IAT/EAT
    • Drives/Partition other than Systemdrive (typically C:\)
    • Show All (don't miss this one)
  • Then click the Scan button & wait for it to finish.
  • Once done click on the [Save..] button, and in the File name area, type in "Gmer.txt" or it will save as a .log file which cannot be uploaded to your post.
  • Save it where you can easily find it, such as your desktop, and attach it in reply.

**Caution**
Rootkit scans often produce false positives. Do NOT take any action on any "<--- ROOKIT" entries
