Whenever i run a search on google, the results appear normal but do not direct me to the correct page - instead i get redirected to another page; usually go.google or something like that. This problem started about a month ago and has been very frustrating. Once google worked normally for about an hour but then reverted to redirecting me to other pages.

I've listed my HJT log below, any help will be greatly appreciated:

Hi CSW and welcome to daniweb,
Please do the following;

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (MBA-M) to your Desktop.

* DoubleClick mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install MBA-M.
* Be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.

* Once the program has loaded, select Perform full scan, then click Scan.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
* Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
* When MBA-M finishes, Notepad will open with the log. Please save it where you can find it easily. The log can also be opened by going to Start > All Programs > Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware > Logs > log-date.txt.

Hi Judy thanks for your reply.

I left my computer off for about a week and i just turned it on today to run HJT and to download this Malwarebytes programme that you have advised.

I used google and it seems to be working normally - however as i have not made any changes yet, im not confident that it will carry on.

Should i run the malwarebytes programme anyhow or wait for the problem to return?

Thank you

Bmadams,

Hi, this problem seems to have hit quite a few people.

No i had no item like that on my desktop previously BUT i did have my desktop hijacked by some kind of virus/trojan/spyware shortly before i noticed the go.google redirect problem - i was able to solve this however by following some general instructions i found on the web.

Good Luck

Honestly, if I were you I would go ahead and run the MBA-M program. It is an EXCELLENT program and now anyway is the one to use for many nasty items. I update and use it several times a week just to be save.

I tried this but MBA-M won't run. Any other ideas?

Judy,
Another new program that cleaned a new trojan is Dr Web

also try mba in safe mode.

Hi cotojoe, You really need to begin your OWN thread stating all the problems you are experiencing, when they started, what you were doing when they started and what steps you have attempted. and also post a HJT log and then maybe we can begin to help. No two computers or problems are exactly the same so posting help to multiple folks in one thread is never advisable. Start your own thread and one of us here will be really happy to help.
Be sure and better explain about MBA-M not working when you do post. It is a SUPER program and very few have problems with it. But that also depends on the infection.

Judy,
i got a bit confused on who I was responding to...just FYI, I also kinda jumped on a thread already in place..its easy to do when the thread appears to be addressing the same problem you have.....I agree with MalwareBytes, its been an awesome find....although it was not able to fix my "hijacked search results" problem. I plan to do a rebuild of that system to fix it but had to let the customer catch up on other work first. If I do get it back I will post a HJT in a new thread......also, I ran into a new trojan out of China that MB could not fix. It would shut down MB and AVG from running. It was a variant of patched-ck and worm.pabug.ck...thats when I found this prograg Dr WEB. It fixed the problem as fast as MB usually fixes problems. just thought I would let you know...BA

Hi bmadams, thanks for the reply.

i got a bit confused on who I was responding to...

Ha! Shows how confusing it gets if multiple people post their problems in an all ready running thread. You'll note I didn't tell you to start your own since you were posting a suggestion rather than a problem. Am not familiar with Dr. Web. I do want to remind all that MBA-M updates in a really rapid pace, sometimes more than once a day. You should always Update MBA-M before each run, even it you just updated it the day before.
