It seems that whenever I use a search engine, like google, upon clicking a result for the first time, I am redirected to a site like Shopica or some other ad site. It does bring me to my desired search result after I press back and click it again, but it's awfully annoying. I used Eset/NOD32 online scan, Housecall, Malware Bytes, Spybot and AVG, but they all found nothing. Could anyone help?

I am off to bed, but you can run the following for me and I will check back when I wake up in about 7 hous.

==

Please download GooredFix from one of the locations below and save it to your Desktop
Download Mirror #1
Download Mirror #2

  • Double-click GooredFix.exe to run it.
  • Select 1. Find Goored (no fix) by typing 1 and pressing Enter.
  • A log will open, please post the contents of that log in your next reply (it can also be found on your desktop, called GooredLog.txt).

Note: Do not run Option #2 yet.

==

It would be nice to see the logs from the apps you have already run too.

I will rescan with the others and get their logs if necessary (if i recall, logs for all those programs said nothing was wrong)
