Some Sites Redirecting - Where Do I Start?

Unread postby scottcadman » January 2nd, 2011, 2:23 pm

Hi there -

Came across this thread (viewtopic.php?f=12&t=51838&start=0) while trying to sort out my problem. Some of the websites I visit most regularly have started redirecting to a website I've never been on before. This problem just started occuring a few hours ago, soon after watching videos on a site with many pop-ups. I am using Firefox on Windows 7. I hope somebody on here can help me sort it out.

I'm a teenager without masses of computing skills so bare with me! I must get this sorted ASAP or I'm in BIG trouble.

Thanks,

Scott

EDIT - It actually appears to be only one site that is being redirected. Nobody else using it is recieving any trouble though.

I did the scan using HijakThis and this is what came up:

Please familiarize yourself with the forum rules: >Forum Posting Rules - Please Read<

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.
