Re: [Malware] Google redirect infection. slowing down PC, please The logs are clean and I can find no indication of a malicious redirection. Some legitmatep orgrams can also cause redirection.
Do all browser redirect? All the time or just occasionally? To the same sites or random?
You may want to consider removing Pando Media Booster. Information is not positive and it may be possible redirect source.

so far only firefox does it, after running all of these scans i thought i had gotten rid of it because test searches were going to the appropriate links, but just now i tried again, and first page of results was working fine, but trying page 6 of "breakfast sandwich" was redirecting me again, instead of my intended www.boston.com link.
Is there anything else I can try? I'm more concerned about my file safety since this seems pretty intrusive and I use this PC for bill paying.

just tested again using yahoo instead of google and the same thing is happening but results on the first page are starting to redirect again. Bah. my AVG flagged a tracking cookie but i wasn't able to delete it. I'm not 100% sure what to do now =(
