search problem

Post by mk303254 on 25th March 2010, 4:35 am

Every time I attempt to search for something through an internet search adress such as google, bing, or any search engine a pop up comes up stating that my computer my be at risk and i need to purchase anti virus software... I know this is a virus because i have had similar cases. this one also causes my internet to run slower than it had in the past. My computer still runs like it did before, just the internet has slowed. also when i go to search anything through the facebook search it freezes up and i have to resart internet explore. the only way I am able to bypass the popup is to go through the task manger and close it through their. It also causes the search engines to complely ingnore what i searched for and go to some random websights. can you please help?

Download [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] by OldTimer to your Desktop.

  • Close all windows and double click OTL.exe
  • Click Run Scan and let the program run uninterrupted
  • It will produce two logs for you, one will pop up - OTL.txt, the other will be saved on your Desktop - Extras.txt. Post both logs in this thread.
  • You may need to use two posts to get it all.

Please download exeHelper from one of the two links.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

  • Double-click on exeHelper.com or exeHelper.scr to run the fix.
  • A black window should pop up, press any key to close once the fix is completed.
  • Post the contents of log.txt (Will be created in the directory where you ran exeHelper.com)
Note: If the window shows a message that says "Error deleting file", please re-run the program before posting a log - and post the two logs together (they will both be in the one file).
