Search Engine Hijacked
Posted on 2010-11-16
I have a problem with a hijack of my search engine. When I go to a search engine (Google, Yahoo, Etc) the sites I previous visited I can navigate to with no problem, the sites I never been to I get redirected to an ad. When I hit back to return to the search engine and try the link again it works fine.
What I tried...
Reset IE and disabled all add-ons, set auto detect for proxy setting.
Uninstalled and reinstalled IE.
Ran Malware Byes, Symantec Virus Scan, Advanced System Care, HijackThis, System Restore.
Checked the DNS address on another computer in the same domain which is working fine and compared it to the computer that has the issue....same address.
Tried Firefox and Firefox safe-mode worked fine till a few minutes later and starting showing the same redirection.
