  • General discussion

  • Okay, so evry time I do a search using IE or Firefox, and I click a link in the results, my browser keeps redirecting to me these ad-type sites.  I have used Malware, Ad Aware, Microsoft One Care, Windows Defender, and my own Symantic virus program to scan for possible threats.  They all found something so I did the recommended action with each of them hoping it would fix it.  Nothing. My browsers still redirect me.  I need help AND FAST!!!  ANy suggestions would be most appreciated!

  • Okay, so I used Windows Live One Care and it did not fix the problem...which is why I posted my question in the first place.  I did find a thread about svchost.exe trojan in this forum, so I know that it's not just me this thing is effecting.  Why wouldn't the Windows Live One Care not take care of it?  I downloaded the free 90 day trial, and will purchase it if it will do the job...
    Thanks!
