Random Redirects and Firefox not saving history

Q: Random Redirects and Firefox not saving history

Hi, as the topic says my problem is random redirects and Firefox isn't saving browsing history for more than a day, and that has nothing to do with settings.
The only redirect address I've noticed and remember is server2.mediajmp.com, but there have been others.

Preferred Solution: Random Redirects and Firefox not saving history

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hello,I have been lurking bleepingcomputer as a non-member for a while now. I typically am able to find the instructions to fix almost any problem a computer (be it mine or a friends) has from your forum. Now it seems I am unable to find the solution to my specific problem, so I finally signed up as a member! My problem is similar to all these redirect virus issues I have been reading, but slightly different and not quite the same.Here's the problem:Randomly when I am browsing the internet, every now and again a site that I come across (typically while using StumbleUpon [Firefox Add-On]) will redirect to some completely random site. It doesn't appear to follow any pattern, and has redirected to various different websites. The websites I am redirected to are rarely the same website I was redirected to before, the only exception being theclickcheck.com and yellowpages.com, both of these websites I have been redirected to more than once. Additionally, even if I don't have a browser open a pop-up will appear in a new window. If a browser is open, the pop-up window error will occur more frequently it seems(in a separate window, not a separate tab). Also, I noticed each redirect or pop-up goes through google-analytics.com, so this may still be the google redirect virus, but I am unsure.I have had this issue for about a week now, and I have been unable to get the time to really find the problem. I wish to do online banking, bill paying, and the what not but fear that... Read more

Recently i have been getting a lot of random pop-ups that normally lead to sites trying to give me a virus. AVG Free Edition 9.0 always blocks these attacks but i really want to get rid of this because i can't ever get to the site i am trying to get to. About a week ago i had a rouge anti-virus (Windows Defender 2010) which i finally got rid of using Malyware Malbytes. After that my PC was acting weird and Just-In-Time Debugging keeps popping up. Sometimes SVChost or something like that crashes and then nothing works. Also after i removed the rogue anti-spyware none of the icons on desktop or in start folder would open. So i looked it up and i had to copy this into notepad and save it as fix.reg.

Pasted the following:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\.exe]
[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\secfile]
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\secfile]
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.exe\shell\open\command]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\shell\open\command]
@="\"%1\" %*"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.exe]
@="exefile"
"Content Type"="application/x-msdownload"

This let me open all programs but then Mozilla Firefox would do random tabs and redirects.
Also i tried this.

Went to: C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc
Opened Hosts and deleted EVERYTHING. Then saved.
Deleted all backup hosts and thats about it.

I have a similar problem to http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/271417/google-redirect-both-ie-and-firefox/When I search in Google and click on a link in the organic search section I occasionally get redirected to another site. At first, I was being redirected to various Clickbank products. I did some research and found it was always a hoplink with a certain affiliate code. I alerted Clickbank and they have closed that account. But I'm still getting redirected, it just goes to an error page from Clickbank stating that the account has been closed or disabled. I also get redirected to Amazon. I'm assuming that it's probably the same guy. The redirects happen randomly (not every time). I use Firefox 3.5.5. I'm also using TrendMicro Internet Security Pro 17.1.1250 with the latest updates.I've run full scans with both TM and MalwareBytes, but neither find any problems. I don't see anything that pops out in my HighJackThis Log.Usually, I can find and remove these things on my own, but this is over my head. I'm stumped. I've seen other posts with similar problems that point to it being a rootkit and that's a little beyond my level of expertise.Please help. Thanksrbr451

when this is all over with, as much as i have enjoyed using Iolo system mechanic (utilities) and thus bought Systemshield to go with it... maybe you can make a recommendation for preferred/better virus protection SW... Is SystemShield not as good as i was lead to believe? Maybe It didn't matter, and any AV would have had this issue(?)

ok, talk to you soon...

Hi First time posting. So I don't know if this is the correct part of the forum to submit to so if its not, just let me know where to submit  it to  My problem is that I use Firefox (main browser Win 7) to browse and every so often it will redirect my websites to adware. For example when I "middle click" on a site at Google or Reddit, it usually opens a new tab but sometimes it opens this completely other site which im guessing is malware, I use Adblock Plus so not every malware site redirects to it, a lot of the time it is just a blank page with an obvisouly incorrect URL. I used to be able to browse just fine, but now it seems every so often that it wants to redirect me to this other site. MSE always pops up telling me it wants to send a ".tmp" file to Microsoft because it doesn't know what it is. But whenever I use MSE or Malware Bytes (even on the full trial version, or rootkit scan) it never picks up anything when it has been scanned. I have scanned it normally and on Windows safe mode. If anyone could help it would be much appreciated. Thanks.

I am extremely new to computers and my son and I now have one. I believe he has made changes to his computer to hide his actions from me (hes 10 and knows more about computers than I),

*because his Internet Explorer history only saves sites sporadically it seems,
*and downloads are also not saving, and neither are cookies.

I'm sure other things are not saving as well.

*I have tried to reset his IE settings to default, and it did nothing.

I have noticed that the few cookies that are in his Temporary Internet files are all searches for Windows how-tos' involving Indexing his computer, Deleting Browsing History, and System Restore. I'm not sure if him messing with these settings could have caused his computer to not save anything, or what.

*Should I try to restore Internet History files first, and then try a System Restore? Or should I just do/or do not do a System Restore at all and try something else?

I'm really worried about what he might be hiding from me and would like to resolve this so I can monitor his computer use. Also, if there would be another part of the website I could post this that might be more helpful, Please let me know. Thanks

A:IE 9 history not saving, downloads not saving, nor cookies.

He might be using the 'In Private' mode - this does not save any cookies, history, or anything at all. Downloads are still saved, though, but he can delete those just like any other file, of course.

Well, like the title says, Firefox keeps redirecting me to random sites. For instance I clicked on a wikipedia link and got sent to Travelocity.com. This just started happening earlier today, out of nowhere, and it's only Firefox that does this. The last things I remember downloading are Artweaver, Torsion, Notepad++, and Torsion, but that was all maybe over a week ago. I've used Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and deleted four infected files. I've researched a few other threads but I'm still not exactly sure what I need to do. Can somebody please give me some direction? I'm using Windows XP by the way.

A few days ago, I started to get browser redirects in both IE and Firefox - it seems random in Firefox; in IE, it's about every second or third link that redirects in a Google search. I'm also getting random popups from both IE and Firefox. I have ran Malwarebytes, Adaware, Trend Micro's Housecall, Spybot, SuperAntispyware. I had upgraded Adaware to their paid service, and it found trojans, but did not take care of the popup and redirect problems. Now, nothing is being found by any of the anti-malware, but I'm still having the same issues. I'm having issues getting into Adaware to give details on the trojans. Additionally, I downloaded CA Anti-Virus Plus Anti-Spyware 2010, but the install failed and now I can't get rid of it off of my computer.

I seem to have picked up a nasty trojan. I use Firefox 3.5 to browse (though the issue happens with IE too).. For the past several days, while clicking on a google search result (or links on other pages), I get a new firefox window opened with 3 tabs. The first 2 tabs are just urls with weird characters. The 3rd tab is usually pointing to a mozilla folder followed by funny characters: Message: Firefox can't find the file at /C:/Program Files/Mozilla Firefox/<funny characters>

I have VirusScan OnAccess enbled and it constantly seems to be cleaning a file iaStor.sys, which it detects as a trojan. But cannout seem to fix it. I ran MBA-M and it does not detect anything. VirusScan on-demand also detects nothing.

This is my work laptop and am afraid to lose anything. Please help !!

Hi,

I recently had a virus/rootkit or some type of malware installed on my computer. Basically because I accidentally clicked yes to one of those "you're computer is infected" links. I ran Malwarebytes and AD-Aware before hand and I thought I got rid of everything, unfortunately I did not as Firefox still opens random tabs.

I read the first steps, my logs are attached below. Unfortunately I do not have a Windows Install CD, I think it's forever lost somewhere.

I read the previous posts similar to mine but was not able to figure out what exactly to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi,

I've recently discovered what I believe is a trojan horse, which is hijacking links, and taking me to different sites from the one that I requested. This does not happen every single time, but is obviously causing a lot of worry and stress about whether the sites I am looking at are the correct ones. If anyone could help, that would be very appreciated.

Firstly, I think I probably got this from some shady porno sites while in private browsing, fwiw

basically, whenever I google stuff using firefox on my laptop (64 bit windows 7, dell xp), oftentimes, when I click on the links, it opens up some random spam website. It takes numerous clicks to actually get the actual link to open. Also, when this doesn't happen, clicking on any google searches redirects the browser to google.com/webhp. I have to exit this tab and open a new tab for google to work after this. Finally, firefox now uses up to 25% of my cpu performance when I check my task manager. So far, these problems only exist on firefox, and IE is fine, but I'd still like to get rid of this possible malware. Thanks!

I remember my pc being locked out where I could not open any programs or task manager unless I download the fake anti-malware program.

I removed most of the stuff with malwarebytes, spybot and SUPERantispyware in safe mode but it doesn't seem to get rid of my firefox browser directing me to a random site periodically. I scan multiple times a day and each time I find a trojan which I thought I had already removed.

Ok so i've noticed that firefox randomly will open ad pages in new tabs and redirect my google searches.

I have run complete scans with superantisypware, avira, spybot, malwarebytes, iobit security 360 and inbuilt windows malware scanner. Some of which came up with detections which i got rid yet the problem remains. I tried to restore my comp but it failed, obviously one of the malwares clever tricks.

Here is my DDS log. The attach.txt file is attached but i could not get the GMER rootkit scanner to work. It would complete the scan but as soon as i tried to save it it would give a blue screen and restart...not good i would say. So hence i dont have an ark.txt.

Really starting to worry. I read that these things are usually to direct internet traffic to specific sites to increase ad revenue for the malware people. I havn't done any internet banking cos i am not that foolish but is there much of a chance they will get control of my gmail or facebook accounts? How paranoid should i be in terms of infections spreading to other networked computers and external hard drives?

My Run command doesn't save the history of commands entered. I was told the registry was missing some commands and the only way to fix it is to create a new user account. The problem is I have tweaked a lot of settings the way I want them and it would be a lot of work to redo them. Is there a way to edit the registry and fix this in my current user account?

I'm not a pro at editing the registry, but I do some some experience with it. (Ex. I had a conflict w/2 versions of a program - B wouldn't uninstall, A would install but loaded as B. I deleted all references in registry for B & reinstalled both, now they work correctly.)

Hi Techsupportforum. I'm having a problem with internet explorer not saving my browsing history anymore and would like it fixed.

Version of IE (Internet Explorer) - 8.0.6001.18828
Operating System - Windows Vista Home Premium Service Pack 2
What you have tried - Just a restart
What the problem is - Browsing history is not being saved anymore
Give detail explaining your problem - History has been saved up until and including Thursday. When I click Today (which I presume is Friday even though today is Saturday) nothing happens.



Seems like the problem occured either Thursday or Friday. Windows Update installed quite a few updates on Thursday. None of them look like they relate directly to Internet Explorer. I'm still wondering if they had some sort of affect though? The updates are:

- Security Update for Windows Vista (KB973565)
- Update for Windows Mail Junk E-mail Filter [November 2009] (KB905866)
- Security Update for Windows Vista (KB969947)
- Security Update for Microsoft Office Excel 2007 (KB973593)

First hello! I'm not sure of how to go about saving an internet search history? Basically I need to save the search history of a computer at work at the end of each day but i'm not sure how to go about doing this.

I understand that Explorer save's the search history itself, but i need to reference the history and to be able to access it from another computer other than the one that was used for the history.

If anyone knows the best way to go about this that would be ace, thanks!

A:Saving internet search history?

IE>Tools>IE Options>Settings>Set a large amount of disc space. Even then, when it's full sites won't be saved. To get it from another computer you need one of the third party programs. The most popular ones are GotomyPC and Pcanywhere.

Is File History really only saving files in the library? I find AppData very important to me as it includes my Firefox profiles, application settings (very important for Adobe products), etc.
If it's saving, everything is fine. What would be the alternative? Setting up File History and W7-Backup for ApPData only?

Hi
You can simply create a new Library named Application Data and add the AppData folder in your user account folders to the new library. This will add it to the File History.
You can do the same for any other folders that you want to include in the File History list.

Normally ie7 saves 20 days worth of History. Today I noticed that no websites are being saved in my History. There are .txt files saved in history that I have opened, but no websites. I have cleaned out my History, temp internet folders ect with no luck.

I can't remember changing any settings, so I'm not sure why this is happening.

A:Internet Explorer 7 not saving History?

In Internet Options go to the General tab

Then under the Browsing History header go to 'Settings' and check that this hasn't been set to 0. If it's set to 0 then it will clear it out each time you close Internet Explorer
