Google toolbar searches getting redirected

Unread postby Aistan » July 29th, 2010, 11:11 pm

Hey,

I'm using Firefox and just recently any searches I do using the search bar to the right of the address bar, as well as any using the Google toolbar take longer than normal as well as showing a list of spam ads as the first page of results. Going to the second page of results shows what would normally be expected, as well as taking me to the actual sites, there's no redirecting going on here. This also occurs when I am playing a game through Steam and go to Google in the Steam overlay.

I've run several antivirus and antimalware searches, and whatever they've found hasn't been what is causing this, since it still happens.

Here's my HijackThis log:

I see from your HJT log that you're using a 64 bit operating system.

Unfortunately, the tools we use to analyze and remove infections do not work properly on a 64 bit operating system, and their results cannot be relied upon. Because of this, it is almost impossible for us to correctly diagnose problems, and the fixes we might offer could potentially do as much damage to your computer as any infection you might have.

Due to the above stated reasons, we do not at this time offer support for 64 bit operating systems. We are sorry that we are currently unable to assist you.
