    I have a similar problem to that previously described in a now closed thread, ie. http://forums.techguy.org/malware-r.../587485-solved-ie7-google-search-results.html

    As an example, a Google search for a particular financial organisation in Australia turns up several pages of results. When I clicked on one link I was directed via jump and redirect malware to a different site to that selected. I discovered the Recent Pages button (next to the Forward button) had 2 new entries, A "Jump" entry and a "Redirect" entry.

    The malware only appears to function on the first Google search of an IE7 session on a new tab or window. A subsequent Google search following the redirection using an existing tab or window does not result in a redirection.

    I include Hijackthis and Panda Activescan logs for your analysis. I hope that I will be as successful in eradicating this problem as it is causing me some angst.

    I followed the instructions recommended by cybertech in this thread http://forums.techguy.org/malware-removal-hijackthis-logs/757092-possible-malware-infection.html and after running both ATF and Malwarebytes and rebooting, the problem was gone. perhaps the FakeAlert trojan or the may have been the cause.

    Here is the mbam log file taken before rebooting.

    As a result of the effectiveness of Malwarebytes in solving this problem I immediately purchased a copy and gave AdaWare the flick.
