firefox/google problem

Post by kaden361 » Mon Jul 06, 2009 11:08 pm

hello, I need help with a problem I'm having when using google.. lets say i search for
a bike. google will give me a bunch of links, ok its all good up to here. once I click on a
link instead of going to that page i will get redirected to some other website like monster,
or some other weird selling site. When I use IE i don't get this problem it takes me to the link the
the serach browser gives me. I have ran spyware and anitvirus scan and nothing, so I was wondering What
i can do to fix this problem? thnx for any help you can give me.

I've dealt with this problem before; MalwareByte's Anti Malware scanner is very good, give it a try. HijackThis might also be useful, if you know what you're doing.

I'll try that malware program your talking about, as for hijackthis it sees and I stop it,
but more pop out later...I can stop the problem for a while but it just comes back.

ok.....after running glary utilities, malware byte, avast, Spybot s&d, hijackthis, and updating firefox, clearing my cache,
cookies, downloads, history everything! its still happening...starting to get frustrated. I might reinstall firefox see if that fixes it.

tried chrome still happens, its has something to do with ask.com because as it redirects the page one of the pages it goes through before redirecting some weird site is ask.com. this has gotten very annoying...thnx for the ehelp hopefully i can figure this out.
