    Corrupt Search Results

    I Used Spybot, Lavasoft ,webroot on my computer to search for Spyware, Adware.

    I have noticed over the last two days that when i search on Google and Yahoo the first 4-5 results are all porn type sites , and they are the same sites coming up no matter what i search for or whether i search on Google/yahoo.

    I even removed IE explorer and installed Firefox and the problem still happens.

    Has anybody experience this problems ? if so can anyone help .

    thanks

    Here is an example of something like what you describe :

    I would suggest a thorough scan in safe mode. Carefully follow the directions in this tutorial :

    Good luck, and let us know.

    Update all your programs to their latest versions (Spybot has version 1.4 out now and Lavasoft has version 1.06 out now). Boot into Safemode (F8 when your computer is starting up and then choose Safe Mode) and run all your scans from there.

    This prevents (99.9 percent of the time) the malware/spyware/crapware from starting up and interfering with the program scans.

    Download and install HiJackThis (http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/downloads.html). Run a scan and post the scan log here and let us have a look at it.

    This is fishy, but I am not sure what it is, so take care. It didn't show up on google.

    Suspicious. A quick search shows the last one is trojan related.

    I would start looking at these.

    Take care when playing with the registry like this. You can do damage. I have just had a quick look at this. The first group I would go ahead with, and I would do away with the "eied_s7.cab". The rest call for some more digging.

    Good luck.

    This really caught my eye. Most of the problems with wrong content stem from bad dlls. This one is what I think is causing those issues.

    Also Any tips on avoiding this kind of browser hijacking software from infecting my computer ?
    Switch to Firefox.

    Get a registry protector like RegProt.

    Make antivirus/spyware scanning (in safemode) a regular habit.

    Use a firewall.

    Don't visit shady sites.

    well here's one suggestion

    why don't u run a good pop up blocker to filter out java scripts when u surf the net ? 9 times outta 10 java scripts are the culprit for malware and the other small percent is from active x scripts. so there ya go. i use ad subtract pro whenever i surf unknown territory. changing ur browser is a tad extreme in any case because ur still gonna get java scripts if they r not filtered no matter what browser u use.
