    I have a virus that re-routes certain searches and downloads in IE to the search page hxxp://searchpage.cc/1526/ I have scanned with AVG, I have run Spybot, AdAware and HijackThis, yet still have not found the cause. Has anyone else had this or know what to do with it? Thanks a mil if even you can give ANY help!

    Hi daddio

    Welcome to TSG! :)

    Click here to download CWShredder. Close all browser windows,UnZip the file, click on the cwshredder.exe then click "Fix" (Not "Scan only") and let it do it's thing.

    When it is finished restart your computer.

    IMPORTANT!: To help prevent this from happening again, I strongly recommend you install the patches for the vulnerabilities that this hijacker exploits.

    The simplest way to make sure you have all the security patches is to go to Windows update and install all "Critical Updates and Service Packs"

    Come back here and post another Hijack This log and we'll get rid of what's left.

    After running shredder please do this:

    Click here to download Hijack This. Click on the Hijackthis.exe.

    Click the "Scan" button when the scan is finished the scan button will become "Save Log" click that and save the log.

    Go to where you saved the log and click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log back here in a reply.

    DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required. Someone here will be glad to advise you on what to fix.

    *Note: When you download Hijack This Do Not download it to a temp folder or to the desktop. Create a permanent folder somewhere like in My Documents and name it Hijack This and put it in that folder.
