Default Please Help with Firefox Redirection/HiJack

It appears that I have some malware on my Windows 7 computer that hijacks only certain urls on Firefox. It specifically happens when I google or use yahoo to search and then click on certain urls in the search hit list. It seems to take me to "mcengine.com" and/or "newsfudge.com". I am attaching the hijackthis logs. I've tried a number of things already including malwarebytes (finds nothing), superantispyware, etc. Thanks in advance for your help.

I want you to run TDSSKiller so refer to the below for how to do so.

TDSSkiller - How to run


Please also download MBRCheck to your desktop
  • Double click MBRCheck.exe to run (vista and Win 7 right click and select Run as Administrator)
  • It will show a Black screen with some information that will contain either the below line if no problem is found:
    • Done! Press ENTER to exit...
  • Or you will see more information like below if a problem is found:
    • Found non-standard or infected MBR.
    • Enter 'Y' and hit ENTER for more options, or 'N' to exit:
  • Either way, just choose to exit the program at this point since we want to see only the scan results to begin with.
  • MBRCheck will create a log named similar to MBRCheck_07.16.10_00.32.33.txt which is random based on date and time.




Now do not stop, please continue on with the below instructions too!

It would appear that this has been resolved by uninstalling/completely removing and reinstalling Firefox. Thank you
