Jumping and being redirected to other search sites


G

Guest

For the past month now, whenever I click on a link to a web site from any
search engine, Yahoo, Excite, Live Search, Google, etc. I am redirected to
other search engines or web sites that have nothing to do with the subject I
am looking up. I have been told I have adware/malware/spyware. I have
Computer Associates 2007 Security Suite, have done numerous system scans, ran
a malicious sohtware scan from Microsoft web site and nothing has been found.
When a jump occurs the initial address is
http://67.29.139.220/jump/?affiliate=
followed by symbols.

Is there anyone who can help me understand what is taking place? I am not
new to computers and have worked with the internet and Windows XP for several
years but have never encountered anything like this before.

Thank you in advance for any info you can give me and how to correct this
frustrating situation.

You need more than one program to scan for and detect all the various non
viral malware. Here are some links for dealing with non viral malware.

Hello, I downloaded superantispyware, used it, it found some tracking cookies
and trojens, deleted them When trying searches again the same thing is
happening. I am being redirected to unwanted search engines, everytime I
click on the same link it will take me to different site each time. I am
totally confused.

Thank you for all your help. After trying everything I still was having
trouble. I could click on a link on a search page 20 times and go to a
different search engine each time. I have finally been able to take back
control of my computer thanks to the Microsoft live scan....it found and
cleaned my system of whatever was giving me so much grief.

Hello,

Try performing the scan again to ensure they were removed. If they still
come back, post the name of the trojan.

I ended up doing a complete system restore, uninstalled computer associates
and installed Windows Live One Care. It seems to be working alright now
although I never really found anything that caused the problems I was
experiencing. Perhaps it was missing files or some such.
Thank you for your suggestions.
