I did a full scan with McAfee which found 1 item (I don't remember what it was) and tried Yahoo again and the original link again and it went to a third site that I stopped loading by clicking the red X. I tried this on a different computer and had no problems so I went back to the infected PC and looked at the recent pages tab, which showed Yahoo, the WashTimes article, "Redirect" and then the last ad page which tried to load.
I tried to follow the instructions on topic 2852, the cleaning guide. TFC ran and deleted about 6GB I think. Erunt ran and saved something to the default folder I hope. When I try to save MBAM, I get the error message "The download cannot be saved because an unknown error occurred. Please try again." When I try the MBAM homepage, I get the "Server not found" page. I can still go to msn.com or WashingtonPost.com. I tried downloading from another PC and copying over; but when I try running I get the message "The setup files are corrupted. Please obtain a new copy of the program." I renamed the file, same message. Downloaded a new copy, renamed, transfered over and got same message. Incidently, I tried going back to yahoo and clicking the same link and now it gives the "Server not found" page instead of redirecting, but just that link. (I can still access the page from another PC but I've noticed a pop up was blocked.) So I gave up and opened this new topic.
Thanks in advance for whoever responds.
