IE and FF search engine/links get redirected

Recommended Posts

im new to this here, if im in the wrong place plz move my post. ')

I had system security infect my pc, wa able to disable it so it does not show up with some help from a friend at home.

at first i wasnt able go to any free anti anything web pages from search engine, it would crash my IE, so i got FF, and it does the same thing with FF.

so i got cclean and deleted all files and uninstalled most aps, then it was ok for a while.

then a few days ago i noticed that my seach results for google or anything would get redirected, (almost like it researched with different searchengine) to a site that was not the site i wanted to go to, like i would click on the link i got from the search and it would totally mess me up, then to make things worse i am now 90% of the time redirected. so i have to close tab, click, close tab click. again and again.....

i dont get redirected when i put in the web address myself.

so this in mind iv been trying to get any kind of help, iv been using my friends laptop to download anti malwarebyte, and hijack log, stopzilla, spydoctor, the burn to cd, move it my infected pc, but it will not let me install mawarebytes, nor the hijack, even if i change the setup name for install.

so now im stuck.. im this close to formating my HD... please, please help. :huh:
