When using Google in IE if I search for Ebay France, for example, and google gives a list of sites it has found including Ebay.Fr if I then click on it the address in the toolbar comes up as something random and some other site opens up. Sometimes this then locks up the computer and I can only switch off by using the on/off button on the tower.
If I run AdAware, asquared, Spybot S&D and AVG they don't find anything.
Sometimes if I click on Back and return to the search and then click on the found item again it goes to the correct site but that may take three or four attempts.

What is happening here?

Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE .

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
