FFR, I tried the Microsoft security essentials one first figuring it would be the one....it wasn't. Spent 3.5 hours doing the full scan and on my first search, "ford", it redirected to some ad site. Had me cussing. Tried the malwarebytes one, the first one you listed next. Did the quick search and it found 31 registry entries for bullsh*t. I was stunned. It seems the crap I HAD was named myweb something or other. HAD! lol The malwarebytes one wiped the danged scour redirect fully. Yahoo's working again! Going to do the full scan later today.
On a side note, my amazon.com has had probs logging in on their site when I was shopping the past few days. The login screen would freeze and crash IE and then it would reload the same page again and freeze again. The malwarebytes program seems to have fixed that crap, too!
If anyone has the scour.com redirect crap....the malwarebytes link that FFR listed first above....works!
Thanks, bud! I owe you one!
