It still redirects. My only thought is that the svchost.exe file is infected. My logic behind this was "JIT (Just In Time) Debugger would pop up when using Firefox, and when I would go to debug, it popped the redirected pages up in there. I have yet to run scans in safemode due to the client be out of town, and not knowing how stable things would be with remote software. Do you even think safemode would allow me to get rid of that hijacker if it were in svchost.exe?
I am above average on terminology and experience, I have done numerous removals in the past. At this stage I usually do a sfc scan, and or repair / fresh install (after trying safemode and manual methods)
I have checked the registry up and down for bugs, program files, application data, temp files, prefetch, and so fourth. I've done Hijack this a few times, the first removing everything I could find harmful or un-needed, and checking back the next days in case something "respawned".
