Yes yes, I know this has been posted a billion times, but everything I've tried hasn't helped. Let's start with my current problem.

Of course I search something, click a link and I get redirected. But also on top of that, sometimes pages won't load at all, or I have to refresh like 10 times and it finally comes up. Other than that, nothing else is wrong (as far as I know).

I have had this problem three times in the past. First time it was called Search Settings, and nothing worked and I had to manually go in and delete everything, which worked. I ended up getting it again but a different version or something, so I reformatted. Ended up getting it again another time, along with some other things and I just said screw it and reformatted again. That was last week. I have literally not downloaded anything but Programs, and they are all programs I know I can trust such as last.fm, ventrillo, WoW, etc. It seems to have stayed on there if it's possible and I can't get rid of it. I have McAfee and it can't find it, and I have tried Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware and it found something, but it didn't get rid of it. If I could have some actual help and not links to something else, that would be amazing!

I forgot to add that a few times I was on a page and hit refresh it would redirect me too.

'Yes yes, I know this has been posted a billion times, but everything I've tried hasn't helped'

So why not tell us ALL the things you have tried, you only mentioned McAfee and malwarebytes.
What did malwarebytes find that it couldn't get rid of?

Can't remember everything, but main thing I found was what I have might be called Goored or something along those lines. I tried a fix for that and it didn't work. I did manage to find a temporary fix for it by disabling javascript, but that can be annoying for sites such as hulu.

As for MBAM I found out that it won't update. I keep getting error code 12007 and don't know how to fix it. Everything I found about it just tells me what it is and not how to solve it.

Apparently what I said earlier was actually fixed when I ran MBAM again. Nothing showed up on the log at all.

when you get errors with Mbam just uninstall it and then re-install it, that should fix it.

Should fix it, but it didn't. I've done that twice. I even ran a cleanup to get temporary files just in case. I still got that error. If there is like a third party place to update it or anything that I don't know of that would be cool to know.
