Problem:

Whenever I click a link from a search page like google or yahoo, I am redirected to other pages like clickseekfind or toseeka.com.


I have searched this site and could not find anything called cmdservice to fix the problem. Doea anyone else know how to fix the problem?

This might be Malware related
Go here: http://www.geekstogo...uide-t2852.html
Follow the instructions in that guide, and post in the Malware Forum with the requested logs, if the earlier steps don't fix your problem.

Once you receive a clean bill of health from the malware techs, and you still have problems, then post back here.

I had the same problem two weeks ago.
Let me ask you a question. Are you using a router? I'm gonna guess yes and if you are the the problem may be the same as mine;

At the end of the day the problem was due to my password to access my router being set as the default password; this allowed a trojan to screw up my computer and cause various issues like being directed to google.com when i clicked on "Update Windows" or being unable to load anti-spyware software or updates from microsoft.

It took me a week to fix this because I kept finding the trojan/spyware but than I'd reboot the computer and it would be back. So what I had to do is unhook my router from my modem and run it ('it' being the router) directly to the computer. I then did a "hard boot" of the modem (holding in the 'reset' button on the back of the router for about a minute with a paper clip) and after I logged into it I changed my username and password to something much stronger than "password". I ran my anti-spyware software, deleted the trojan/virus, rebooted the computer, hooked up my router and modem again and viola!! No more problem.
Hope this helps.

This should work, but go to the Malware Forum to make sure that you come out 100% clean. This suggestion also points out that malware is causing this issue.
