    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
