Specs: Windows XP
I also believe that I have the same virus as a few of the other posters on this forum. Everytime I'm on a webpage or a specific search engine and clink on a link I get redirected to another search engine or some weird site. I've been redirected to google, bing, searchnet, etc. Also I have a extremely bad pop up problem that I never had before. I've tried everything. Please Help!

Try this:

Go to C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc & find the HOST file. Right click on it & open with notepad. Are there any sites listed with IP addresses other than ?

No, this is what I found:

Copyright © 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a "#" symbol.
# For example:
# # source server
# # x client host
# localhost
