Search Engine Redirection Issues

Unread postby spankydriscoll » April 20th, 2010, 12:33 am

Hi, I see a few other people have been having problems with this issue lately. I google something and when I click a link I get redirected through this ohtgnoenriga site to random other sites. Here is my Hijack this log (i hope, kinda new to all this)

The sad thing is my roommate just reformatted for me a week ago.

Any help is greatly appreciated! I have so far only tried Malwarebytes. It removed some Dracua thing but that didn't seem to change much.

Hi,

Cracks / Keygens / Warez / Illegal softwares detected!!!
While going through your log, it's indicates the presence and usage of one or more of the above. Very likely your computer got infected due to the illegal softwares or the illegitimate websites you visited to get them.

Validation Status: Invalid Product Key

This forum's policy says we will not help people who use cracked or pirated software.
Illegal Copies of Software

In order to get our advice:
  • I suggest you purchase a legal copy of the software.
  • If you feel that your product key is valid, please contact Microsoft.

I will ask this topic to be closed soon.

Cracks/Kegens/Warez etc.

As the log(s) you've posted indicate, you've used one or more of the above, we will not provide you with any help. Consequently, this topic will be closed and archived.

We do NOT knowingly provide help for anyone using any form of cracked software and/or Operating Systems.

In using the crack, the 'cracker' has broken the 'End User Licence Agreement' (EULA) of the product concerned.
The distribution and use of cracked copies is illegal in almost every developed country.

You will need to go elsewhere if you wish to have your problem resolved.

As most other forums have the same policy, your best option is to format and re-install your operating system and programs from legitimate sources.
