    Hello all. I've got something that has hijacked my Google results, and when I click on the highlighted "find" after searching for something, I get redirected. I ran Ccleaner, but AVG keeps coming up with an illegal interrupt after getting through most of the drive. It also crashes my "cleanup". o_O any ideas?? Thanks much.

    Have you tried a system or registry restore to a date that your PC was stable?

    Have you tried running any antispyware apps in the safe mode? If you can, download and update a-squared Free and (free) Dr. Web CureIT, boot safe, and see if anything shows up.

    You may have a damaged file, crapware or (as I see it from what you've said, worst case scenario) only having to reinstall two programs or dump some crapware. But I wouldn't go for the HJT yet.

    Dave
