Did Malwarebytes And SuperAntispyware Find Anything?
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / April 27, 2010 2:02 AM PDT

If they did find something and removal of such didn't cure the problem, please try a third tool from the link below.. It's free for 30 days and seems to be fixing a number of the redirect issues on these forums. No guarantees but it's worth a shot.:

Hitman Pro 3.5

Hope this helps.

IE redirects

I have the same problem with ie redirecting. Have used all the free spyware & virus removers and have used my own spyware & virus remover. My spyware keeps blocking files that say CLK71YHk566.com & another one that starts with ZOG. I stopped using the google toolbar because that always re-directed me. I just use McAfee secure search when using internet explorer. I am not redirected when using msn or aol search engines. I have deleted the google search I had, but I cannot get rid of those CLK or ZOG files.
