after removing DIGITAL PROTECTION malware, still get redirected on every IE8 search to junk sites RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I got the malware DIGITAL PROTECTION yesterday, after having Mcafee assist with removing it, I am still finding things that are wrong with IE8. Everytime I use IE8 to search for something it redirects me to junk sites. If I use MSN to search it takes me directly to where I click. Would reinstalling IE8 correct this issue?

  • This forum is for the discussion of Microsoft Security Essentials antimalware. If your browser is being redirected either the previous malware was not completely removed or you have been infected again. I would continue to work with McAfee support on this issue.
