My friends computer, running XP SP3, IE 8 keeps getting redirected when doing a search. You type in this forum in the search field and it goes to another page with a bunch of wierd sites. What can I do to fix this. I've ran all know spayware, malware apps I can think of (see list).
Thet all found stuff and all was removed but IE still keeps getting redirected.

Have him flush the DNS cache and restore MS's Hosts file:
Copy and paste these lines in Note pad.
attrib -h -s -r hosts

netsh winsock reset all
netsh int ip reset all
shutdown -r -t 1
Save as flush.bat to your desktop.
Double click on the flush.bat file to run it. The computer will reboot itself.
Next, download TFC by Old Timer TFC - Temp File Cleaner by OldTimer - Geeks to Go Forums and save it to your desktop.
Save any unsaved work. TFC will close ALL open programs including your browser!
Double-click on TFC.exe to run it. If you are using Vista/Windows 7 right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator.
Click the Start button to begin the cleaning process and let it run uninterrupted to completion.
Important! If TFC prompts you to reboot, please do so immediately. If not prompted, manually reboot the machine anyway to ensure a complete clean.
After doing the above make sure the Java is updated by doing this:
