Search Engine Redirects

Unread postby mycarisdirty » November 8th, 2010, 2:41 am

Hi, I'm frequently having search engine results redirected to random pages when I click on them. I also sometimes have odd messages coming from the bottom right hand side of my desktop concerning lack of RAM and a full hard drive. I'm well aware that these are fake messages, but I would appreciate assistance in their removal.


From reading the directions that are to be followed prior to posting, I understand that I must provide a pasted DDS and an attached "attach" file. If I am missing anything, then I apologize.

Here is my dds:

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.
