Help Search Engine redirecting?
#1
Smile 
Hey guys, my search engines (all of it) has been infected with a virus that redirects me to a website that sells crap. I've had it last time, but I reformatted my computer and I do not wish to do that again.
Can you guys please help me!
Thanks so much! Big Grin

C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

No need to post it, blanking it works as well.

Oh okay.
Since I had websites inside there that contained spyware found by Spybot, I thought it was legit.

I forgot how to save hosts as a "File" format.
It saves as a Text Document. -.-

EDIT: Oh nevermind my friend helped me with it. Smile

Hmm For Firefox and Chrome, you got any strange addons/extensions?
Otherwise, the only other thing I can think of is a rootkit which would be a PIA to remove.

Nope, never use addons. But I'll double check.
Yea I've tried rootkiller or something. Didn't work. Scanned for 5 secs?
