It never fails, whenever I click on a link from Google, it redirects me to somewhere else other than where I am going. For example, clicking on Wikipedia in this link: wikipedia - Google Search Gives me this: Scour - Search Socially I just cleaned out my computer, and within the past few days (after this started, and trying to make Google work) I got both "c.exe" and "msa.exe" Trojan horses. Bing, AskJeeves, and Yahoo all have the same problem. SwagBucks / SearchMFR won't even load. Solution?

Or a reformat.

Best solution is a reformat and then setting up the system properly (get all patches for your OS, install up-to-date anti-vrius program, install firewall, download up-to-date browser etc.) before you connect to ther internet again.

And check if any otehr pc's (if any) on your network are infected. You might as well give each other the virus again. :p

Ran an overnight virus scan yesterday night (using AVG) and this did not fix the issue.

I think I have a friend with this issue, and I think they actually also use AVG (subscription version). Their PC is in sad shape... My recommendation is to try Avast! There is other anti-spybot/anti-maliware software that is also recommended on these forums, but I neither use it, nor know what it is.

This freeware program called Combofix helped me out when I had this problem before. It removes most problems itself but even if it misses something it creates a report that can help you find the specific files causing the issue. Most of the time for me it was infected files in the System32 folder.

Funny, I renamed Firefox.exe to Firefoxx.exe and it fixed the issue.
