Yeah, unfortunately, my IE and FireFox browser searches with Google and Yahoo are being redirected. Running Windows XP SP3 on Toshiba Satellite laptop. I have scanned with Spybot, MalWareBytes, SASpyware, and the Micorsoft Removal Tool. MBAM found one registry problem, and Spybot found one infected file, but they did not resolve the redirects. The others detected no issues.
I have read the numerous posts on this as well as other forums (seems like an abundance) on this topic and have attempted as many of the "fixes" as I felt comfortable doing. I was tempted to try ComboFix, but saw many warnings agaisnt using without proper direction, so I didn't. Nothing has resolved the issue.
Also, I have discovered that at the same time the search redirect problem started, I could no longer get the computer to hibernate. It goes to the "Preparing to hibernate..." screen, but then immediately flashes back to the desktop. FWIW, these problems all started after I had been looking at some stuff on YouTube.
I have read and gone through the "Read me before posting" thread and gone through the Initial Cleaning Process.
I am the DIY type and get alot of satisfaction from fixing things myself, but I have gotten so frustrated and have now reached the end of my rope. I hate to admit defeat, but I would appreciate any suggestions.
