Browser Hijacked

Unread postby steelester » September 1st, 2011, 5:04 am

I have a laptop that I use at work. I never go to questionable sites, and I managed to pick up a nasty little virus/malware problem. I fixed most of the problems, or at least enough of them that I can get it working online again, but when I do Google searches, it redirects me to ad sites.

Any help would be appreciated.

Here is a copy of my Hijack This log:

I see you are posting for help for a "Business" computer.

May I draw your attention to THIS topic, which you should have read before posting for help.

The section Posting for help for business machines explains why we do not offer help for such computers.
