Q: GOOGLE Search Modifications

I just noticed something cool with the new way google does searches, and just thought I would share it.When you click the text (search result summary) below the search result link:Advanced troubleshooting for "Stop 0x0000007B" errors in Windows XP <--------Search Result Link Dec 1, 2007 ... This step-by-step article describes how to troubleshoot "Stop 0x0000007B" error messages in Windows XP. This article describes issues that ...support.microsoft.com/kb/324103 - Cached - Similar <-----Search Result SummaryA preview of the website is generated prior to you actually visiting, so you can see the site before you visit it to see if its something you want to click on.This only works in Firefox from what I have seen.This is what I mean:It works in Internet Explorer 8, but not 7.

Preferred Solution: GOOGLE Search Modifications

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi all -

Somehow my father has managed to get something on his computer that is bunging up his system. When I search for something on Google, it appears to return valid sites, but the URL listed under the search results are NOT the correct urls for the sites. (See attached JPG for example)

I've downloaded and run FixWareout, then Hijack This, then winpfind3u.exe (as was advised in several threads I've seen before.) Unfortunately I don't have the knowledge to read them. Could someone read the files (attached) and let me know what I should do at this point?

Thanks!
Tami
 

A:Google search results redirect and Gateway/google search page?

Oh, I also forgot that sometimes if you type a URL directly into the address field, it will redirect to some wierd gateway/google search page saying it can't find the site... however if you type the address in 3 or 4 times, it will eventually go to the correct site.

I am trying to figure out why one of my computers redirects your search when you utilize Yahoo, Google, or MSN search. I enter in a topic and the options come up...once I click on any of those web sites I am redirected to other sites. If I use IE or Firefox this happens. I just want to clean up my system.
I have read many of the threads in forums about this but there are many answers so I am not sure which fix is for my system.

Just purchased a new computer with the win 7 installed. I believe that this is the bottom version of the OS.
I read that you can increase the capability of the factory version by purchasing a "software key" that improves the OS.
My question is, how much does this cost ,and what other features come with that modification, and is it worth it for someone like me that basically spends most of my computer time on-line read blogs and news.

A:Win 7 modifications ??

If that's all you do with it and your happy, why go to the expense and the hassle,
stick with what you have in my opinion. But if you really want to change have a read here.

Ever since yesterday, whenever I try to use Google Search on my browser omniboxes (Firefox and Chrome), instead of leading me to Google it leads me to a weird-looking Yahoo site for some reason. http://us.yhs4.search.yahoo.com/
 
I made sure Google was properly set up as my default search engine, I tried deleting all other search engines, I tried scanning my computer completely with Malwarebytes and Avast in safe mode and I tried reinstalling Chrome and Firefox, all to no avail. This problem doesn't occur when I change search engines, but I assumed the malware that's making me redirect my browser like this won't suddenly disappear if I use Bing instead or something.
 
How can I get rid of this?

Welcome to the BleepingComputer Forums. Since it has been a few days since you scanned your computer with HijackThis, we will need a new HijackThis log. If you have not already downloaded Random's System Information Tool (RSIT), please download Random's System Information Tool (RSIT) by random/random which includes a HijackThis log and save it to your desktop. If you have RSIT already on your computer, please run it again. Double click on RSIT.exe to run RSIT. Click Continue at the disclaimer screen. Please post the contents of log.txt. Thank you for your patience.Please see Preparation Guide for use before posting about your potential Malware problem. If you have already posted this log at another forum or if you decide to seek help at another forum, please let us know. There is a shortage of helpers and taking the time of two volunteer helpers means that someone else may not be helped. Please post your HijackThis log as a reply to this thread and not as an attachment. I am always leery of opening attachments so I always request that HijackThis logs are to be posted as a reply to the thread. I do not think that you are attaching anything scary but others may do so. While we are working on your HijackThis log, please: Reply to this thread; do not start another!

Hello,My name is Jude, and I am in need of some help.For a month now I have tried to fix these problems by myself, but I now realize I need help to get this fixed.Here is the timeline, and what is still occurring, which I cannot figure out how to fix.About a month ago, the computer became nearly unusable. I ran SpyBot and Malware Bytes, which found 49 malware and 23 other problems. The two problems did their job. I then ran AVG, found a few viruses, and took care of them as well.The computer itself was better, but not the browsers...Internet Explorer refused to load, and although Firefox would, it constantly was opening a new tab to some other website...Then I found that even Firefox didn't want to load... So I tried clicking numerous times (once every time the "wait circle" would stop and no browser would appear) until either IE or Firefox would eventually come up. Looking in Task Manager, I would (and still do) find several instances of Explorer, iExplore, and Firefox loaded into memory.I then found that my search (Google in Firefox, Bing in IE) was hijacked, leading to a different website and opening more tabs again!----------Jumping to today----------------I have tried everything I can think of, and more.. I even updated Firefox, uninstalled IE7 and then installed IE8 (64 bit will load up, but not regular IE). The update fixed the Google search, and yet..When I do a search with Google, often times the top results will not show the link (I have to copy th... Read more

Hello, I have the DDS log, which I will paste below. I have tried to follow the prep guide carefully prior to posting about google redirect, but after 2 attempts consisting of many many hours to scan with GMER, I can't seem to get a log for that. The first scan (which lasted about 10 hours) finally ended with the blue screen and a computer crash. The second attempt scanned for 10+ hours, and then ended with 5 error message pop boxes all over my desktop saying that the file couldn't be saved in the location and to save it elsewhere. When I closed the pop boxes a yellow bubble message appeared in the corner tray saying the same thing, then my computer freaked and froze up and I had to manually restart it.

If there is a log somewhere from the GMER scan(s), I cannot find it. When I opened GMER it only had a short log for the initial quick autoscan that it does upon opening the program. I have no idea what could be relevant in it, but I'll include that below anyway.

For reference, the google redirect seems to be only occurring in Chrome, not in IE. Chrome is also freezing up and freaking out whenever the action is taken to close a tab or the browser window. The redirects are pretty bad, it occurs every time I hit a search result in both google and bing. Only sometimes will it take me to search result I want upon the second try, but most of the time it just repeatedly redirects me to serves.search.me most of the time, and occassionally to other random and s...

Hi, I am having trouble with using google on a computer running Windows XP SP3. The links from search results are being redirected through the pages "basic-search.net", "get-answers-fast.com" and "easyA-Z.com".

Steps taken so far:
1)
Attempted manual removal of files after searching for this problem on google. Located and removed files in
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Network\Downloader
"qmgr0.dat" and "qmgr1.dat".

These had to be removed in safe mode - upon restarting they were back again.

2)
Scanned computer using malwarebytes and spybot s&d. Other than tracker cookies, no problems were detected.
Scanned computer using TDSSkiller, which found nothing either. Some unregistered drivers were found when the optional settings were enabled.
Attempted scan using combofix, based on the success story here:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic412458.html/page__st__45
although this stalls soon after it starts scanning for infected files.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Since the last Win 10 update my Google Toolbar won't list any search suggestions as I type and there is no search history listed. The Google tool bar will allow a search, but after a few searches no search history shows and no "clear search" button is listed either.

I have turnd on "Suggest searches as you type", and "store search histroy on my computer" in the Google Toolbar options.

Any suggestions to fix this?

So I'm new here have this problem been fighting with for a couple weeks. I'm using Windows xp sp3 home edition 32 bit, FireFox 4.0, Avast free current update /w definitions, Malwarebytes Pro. I have ran scan with both found a couple little malware & virus's that where moved to chest and deleted. Just finished a boot time scan with zero issues found. I opened Firefox went to google.com and type anything into the search bar and 90% of the time I get redirected to [ http://www.goingonearth.com/search.php?q=pot%2Bfarms&n=1302662089 ] then after that to various sites doesn't seem to be any order to that part haven't got the same page twice. I did have Google Tools installed I uninstalled that last week and the problem went away for a few days now it's back. Any more info or logs that would help just let me know Thanks.

A:FIREFOX+GOOGLE.COM+SEARCH=http://www.goingonearth.com/search.php?q=pot%2Bfarms&n=1302662089

So now it happens in all search engines seem to be able to navigate the web fine just can't search for results. OK, Budapest I didn't know that the web console in windows with the list of what google was supposed to search for was a combofix.log I was pretty sure they where two entirely different things. As I don't use IE I hadn't check in it, this issue is the same there also. I've deleted all temporary internet files, from both, deleted java's temp files also. I can't find any process that shouldn't be running, I've checked all my add-ons in both IE & FF there are no unknown add-ons in either.

On google search, when i click on the results i get redirected to hxxp://exit.travelsense-search.comWhen i go back to the search results all the results seem to be higlighted as if i have already visited each and every website.Before all this when i would switch my pc on everything would function normally but as soon as i start firefox (default browser) the BSOD would appear but after googling i came across few who said it could be a Flash problem so i unistalled it..now it seems to work fine Couple of days back Avast had detected some virus in the startup or startup memory not sure which ..I think it was called mondo something but after a complete boot scan it deleted the virus. I have tried D.D.S but it does not seem to generate any reports for me. I can just see the black dos window with the instruction and i have waited for more than an hour but nothing. I tried switching off Ad-watch live & Avast anti virus still does not generate anything. I read on the forums that if DDS does not work i can post Hijackthis which works for nowAlso i use an ADSL router (Netgear) for my internet connection and i never use the windows firewall.

I have a laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit with AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 2011 and no third party firewall.

AVG scan is clean. Malwarebytes scan is clean. Ccleaner has been run. I have reset IE 8 settings to default. I have flushed the DNS. I have run HiJackThis and don't see any problems. I have checked the host file and there are no strange entries.

I need to know what to try next. Any help or direction would be appreciated.

I cannot browse to any of the following sites with IE or Mozilla:http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/http://malwarebytes.org/I can browse to www.google.com. It allows me to enter a specific search keyword, pressing search and Google then returns results. However I am not sure if they are normal results or not . They do look pretty legit, (ie.. if I search for "antivirus", I see legitimate sites return from the search like avg.com and symantec.com, etc...)The tricky thing is clicking on one of Google????s search results you????ve just recieved.

When doing google searches in Firefox or IE the links will get redirected when clicked on.
When the redirect is happening www.search-tracker.net appears in the bottom bar of firefox and the page displayed is wrong.
If I copy the link from the page (right click/copy link location) and paste it into the tile bar it always works correctly.
AVG does not show any issues.
Comcast cable network offers free install of McAfee security suite that I use to run.
When this issue showed up I found I could no longer do a virus scan with McAfee as the computer would reboot when the scan started.
All the management functions of McAfee worked fine but start a scan and the computer reboots.
I uninstalled McAfee and installed AVG.
AVG did one round of cleaning and now can't find anything.
I don't remember what AVG found other then tracking cookies. If it leaves a log behind that may still be around.

Hi there,

So, i own a pc, a laptop and an xbox 360 and they are all connected to my home network via a router. now, when i have all three of these running at the same time it can cause a great deal of annoyance and confusion when we are all trying to compete for the most amount of bandwidth,

For example, my brother will be playing halo 2 and have msn open and i will be trying to surf the net on my laptop. now my brother will be complaing that he is not getting "host" and spends some of his games in red bar and my internet pages take a few minutes to load.

so i was wondering if there are any programs or freeware out there that i can go and buy so that i can modify it so that i can tell my router to give my xbox (lets say....) 60 percent of my bandwidth while splitting the other 40% between the two computers and then when the xbox is off it diverts the bandwidth to where it is needed most

If there is anything out there that can help me please post a name and/or link and it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You

Assume we have huge static content in text format which will not be modified. Content should be indexed and searching should be possible. Content can be categorized under different heading or pages, that's not an issue.
Is there any open source desktop application is equivalent or alternative for rocket folio views which has lots of features like windows application - all menus, file, print, search hits, function keys etc., capturing all the words in the given data, number of hits before doing the actual search, whenever started typing and it will say the number of hits for the given combination
If not, which software can be used to develop a platform independent desktop application but which should provide default menus and windows like file, print, save and others options and we should not spend time on it.
If there is a google like search for static data with quick results and easy navigation like folio views it would be great.

Java may be a good fit but building default menus and other behaviors are bit time taken.

In early December, started getting redirect from Google search results. On clicking search result, get redirected to other search engines (including porno) and occassionally direct to a site. Only my profile (which is the admin profile) was affected. Also lost Windows update and McAfee update functions.

Restored the McAfee updating late December with the help of McAfee Technical Support by manually inserting two IP addresses in a file (driver?).

Early this week, children reported similar redirects on their profiles when using myspace. (Parental controls now successfully blocking the unsavourily sites.) The other profile on the machine appears unaffected.
Remain unable to connect to Windows update site.

I have followed the instructions I think successfully and attach the logs.
I would be very greatful if you can clear this problem particularly from the kids profiles.

Hello and welcome to TSF


Apologises for the delay getting to your log. The helpers here are all volunteers and we have been very busy lately. If you are still having malware problems,follow instructions below.

=============

Download HijackThis to your desktop

Alternate link

Double-click on the file you just downloaded.
Click on the "Unzip" button to install. It will by default install to the directory - C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis

Upon install, HijackThis should open for you.

Should it not open, navigate to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis and double click on HijackThis.exe

1. If it gives you an intro screen, just choose 'Do a system scan and save a logfile'.
2. If you don't get the intro screen, just hit Scan and then click on Save log.

I am having the same problem as the person two posts down but I wasn't allowed to reply to that so I'll make my own post.

When I click on search results on Google, links will redirect to other search sites. This happens in both Internet Explorer and Firefox.

I've scanned several times with BitDefender Anti-Virus, MalwareBytes Anti-Spyware, Spy Sweeper, and Ad-Aware. Ad-Aware detected a couple of worms last week but I removed them and since then none of these programs have detected anything (other than some mod I installed for Grand Theft Auto which seems to always come up as a Trojan.Generic, but I've had it installed for atleast a year it's clean).

I have run CCleaner to delete anything in the temp folders and cache, and I've gone into the registry and deleted some [email protected] thing under Firefox extensions. I've also tried searching for a fix (I've found out that if I right-click links and copy and paste them into the address bar they work fine) and another forum site suggested that I download and run some GooredFix program and after I ran it, it said it deleted several registry entries for Firefox. None of this has worked though.

Anyways, here's my HijackThis log:

A:Google search results redirecting to other search sites

I was searching for a solution to my problem when someone on another site suggested ComboFix, and it seemed to solve the other persons problem so I tried it and I think it worked. I tried searching things on Google and so far nothing has been redirected, so it seems to be fixed.

When I select a site in Google and click search another search site opens - not the same search site each time but cycles through for or five sites. Is this the fault of 'Live Search'? if so , how can I get rid of this.

Hi all, I've been hard at work in modifiying my watercooling unit, I know it is not such a good product, but after modifications it is amazing. Soon I will post some pictures if anyone is interested. Here is a list of what I've done:

1. Drained the system
2. Took it apart
3. Took out all stock fans, replaced with Antec Led Fans
4. Took out the restrictive stock tubing, replaced with Tygon 3/8
5. Ran leak test for 3 hours, at the beginning there was one leak, which I fixed with some tightening of c-clamp.
6. Modified front panel, placed another grill, as well as the back panel
7. Modified knob lightning

After all this, when I replaced the tubing, I immediately noticed that the flow meter was spinning much faster, and this effectively reduced my temperatures about 2-3 Celsius at load. Replacing the fans, with better airflow and quieter fans also brought the temps down 1-2 Celsius, also the use of Danger Den MCT-5 Coolant brought my temperatures down 2-3 Celsius as well.
In the end, I used to get a load temp of about 44 Celsius, now I only get about 37-38 Celsius. Quite pleased with the project and acheivement. If you guys want pictures, or illustrations of how I did this, just ask. I will post them later.

Nickoli:

Welcome to the Vista Forums

Have you already installed zone alarm and are getting these errors or are you installing zone alarm and getting these errors?
