Google Hijack-

by xNemesis7x / July 8, 2010 12:21 PM PDT

Yesterday after my computer was restored to a previous point, my google would start redirecting itself to advertising websites and stuff I didn't want. I tried running Malwarebytes Anitmalware, PC Tools Antivirus Free, Spybot: Search and Destroy. None of these programs did anything to help.

Can someone please help me out?

I ran the program and I think it worked.

I have typed in several searches and clicked on dozens of links. So far they have all led me correctly, where as before I would have atleast gotten a few redirects. Grin

Thank you thank you THANK YOU!!!

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
