First off, I've started using Firefox now and just noticed that it redirects my Google searches. It was largely redirecting me to Ask Jeeves or to other supposed search sites that I didn't recognise. I did some searching for fixes and used Hitman Pro 3.5 as suggested by some. This has almost solved the problem - most Google searches are not redirected, but I noticed that the occasional one still is, again to some unknown search site. I am now concerned that I still have some infection. Malwarebytes, Adaware, AVG and Spybot have all come up clean.
Also, even though I am using Firefox, a couple of times last night I got a window saying that IE needed to install something (first time it was a Skype plug-in and 2nd time something else, a .dll file). The window gave the options of "View Message" or "Ask me later". If I clicked View Message my screen went black and then it showed IE in the background with a random page displayed and asked me to install something. I was able to exit and get back to desktop without installing anything (knowingly), but this seemed strange to me.
Secondly, I ran a performance check from control panel and one of the items it picked up was that I was running more than 1 anti-virus program. It listed AVG 9 (the one I use) but also Your Protection (though without showing a file path, as it did for AVG). I wondered if this means I still have some lingering registry entry for Your Protection?
Any help much appreciated.
