    I'm new here, so not sure if this is the correct way of doing it, but I had a huge problem with with browser highjack to a rogue website: click.livesearchnow.com.

    That website installed multiple trojans on my PC despite having current AV and current Spywareblaster installed.

    I thought Spywereblaster should prevent from being redirected to such malicious websites. Both firefox and IE connected to the rogue website without interruptions by themselves.

    It took me a long time to clean the infection, as multiple antimalware products could not detect the infection.

    Could Spywareblaster be updated to block this specific hijack or that specific website?

    Thanks!

    Actually, I too have a number of infected sites that I could send to you guys and you can add it to the blacklisting. You guys should set up some sort of topic where we can submit bad URLs so you can add them to blacklisting or maybe provide some email for us to send to.

    The problem is that a website that is now malicious may not be so 1 minute after, and simply because it's only a legitimate website that got hijacked, or we're dealing with malicious websites that won't last more than a few minutes.

    OK, let me respond to this.

    In the last week, I'm getting highjacks/redirects to these websites:
    click.searchwebresults.com
    click.livesearchnow.com

    if you google for those, you will find out these highjacks have been happening for a long time and are difficult to fix. I'm still battling the issue as of now.

    The infection is serious, my passwords were stolen and used to create tweets on my behalf that lead to some other malicious websites.

    I'm frustrated that the combination of up to date browser/antivirus/spybot/spywereblaster can do nothing about it.

    Looks like I'll have to reformat the drive to fix it.

    I know you posted this in good faith, but it was actually insulting. I spend nearly a week dealing with the infection and fallowed a lengthy cleaning process suggested by bleepingcomputer.com including Combofix, Roguekiller, Adwcleaner, Securitycheck, and TDSSkiller.

    Prior to that I did scans with: AVG, Spybot S&D, Kasperski AV, Malwerebytes antimalware, and Bitdefender AV.

    Nothing was detected.

    Do you have anything else to add to that?

    And yet according to you there is a redirect. There is a reason why those sites exist and why they are expert malware fighting sites. You prefer to format, go for it.
