I am using Internet Explorer 7.0. When ever I go to any search engine and search, I do receive the results from the search. However, when ever I click the link to go to the website, I am directed to advertisement on the Internet and not the site I want. I have used Ad-ware and Spybot to remove potential issues of Span, etc., but I am still experiencing the issue. What would you recommend?

Please get all requirements from the same site. Also download the tools mentioned by searching on google.com, all easy to find.
I am off for today, so let me know how it goes.
Hi,

I only ever get this issue when my computer is inundated with spyware and adware.

Unfortunatly after so many tries and attemtpts to removing these files i always end up reformatting the pc (because it ends up being quicker than downloaded a ton of applications, running searches and diagnostics and removing files).

However, me telling you to reformat the machine is not the best answer you could get!

so lets try this: http://www.hijackthis.com/ and then download hijackthis run it and paste the output file in this call here so we can see whats what

I have tried everything on this suggestion page, to no avail. Am I forced into reimaging?

byrianr,

I thought it was a wareout infection. If you have an image, back up your data and reimage. It only takes 10 minutes and you are back in business.  If time is not an issue, we can further trouble shoot.
