Constantly Being ReDirected to Other Websites When I Click on Results in Google

I have not been using Norton long.

 

When I search a subject in Google, some times, not all the time, when I click a result I get re-directed toa site like "Find it", or sometimes to a random financial website.

 

I have run full scans, downloaded the latest virus definitions but this still occurs

 

Any ideas?

Hi Welcome to Norton community

 

Download Malware Bytes

 

http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html

 

Update Run scan 

 

You may have a threat like Vundo Variant or a rootkit in your system.

 

Also Download Hitman Pro( Has False Positives)

 

http://www.surfright.nl/en/hitmanpro

and scan

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Please Please Please !!!!

 

 

Don`t proceed with removal.

 

 

 

links suggested by Delphinium

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you have any threat in your system found I suggest you got to these forum 

 

Register in any one them only

 

 

they should help you get rid of the malware completely

 

And also Find other threats which were not Detected.

You can also Download Hijack this

Also get a start up log using the app.

Sorry not to have mentioned

 

 

Just because hitman pro and mbam didn`t detect anything does not mean sys. is free from threat

Hello gmlasher

 

Welcome to the Norton Community Forum & Happy New Year

 

What operating system and service pack are you running? What Norton product and what is the version number of your product please?

 

 

Do the logs show anything as being prevented from entering your computer? The only program I would recommend to install now is the free version of Malwarebytes and run a full scan with that. You can post the results of that here using the add attachment link.

 

If it is necessary for you to go to one of the free malware removal sites listed, it is best not to run all these other programs unless requested by the malware removal site.  Running these other scans may make the problem worse and will only be asked to run it again by the removal site if they want you to run it. They have the proper tools and experience to help you get it cleaned up. Bleeping Computer is going to produce the longest wait time. All the listed sites are good.

 

Please come back and let us know the answers to the questions I listed also and with the log from Malwarebytes. Thanks

 

 

Happy New Year !

Success always occurs in private and failure in full view.
