Specs: Windows Vista
I have had an problem searching on google for the last week or so. Every time i type in a search and then go to click on the correct link it redirects me and opens up a whole new result, sometimes for some thing totally different, sometimes bringing up search results for another search engine. I have tried a few things but nothing seems to have worked so far and i could really do with some is so annoying and really frustrating me. Any help would be muchly appreciated!

Download DDS and save it to your desktop.

Disable any script blocker if your Anti-Virus/Anti-Malware has it.
Once downloaded you can disconnect from the Internet and disable your Ant-Virus temporarily if needed.
Then double click dds.scr to run the tool.
When done, the DDS.txt will open.
Click Yes at the next prompt for Optional Scan.

When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:
1. DDS.txt
2. Attach.txt (do not zip just copy/paste)

Save both reports to your desktop then post them please.You may need to post in segments to get all the info to us as the logs may be to large to fit in one post.

first of all, go into msconfig and disable everything exept your AV and firewall from startup and reboot.
Then run:
1- Malwarebytes and remove all it finds
2- Trojan Remover
3- Hitman Pro.
Those are all safe to use and user-friendly.
Run the last 2 untill they are clean and then you can uninstall them. That will save you lots of scans

Some HELP in posting on plus free progs and instructions Cheers
