    It appears I have some bs attached to pc browser somewhere, all search results selected send me to nothing related to my search. Using 64 bit win7, is there a free rootkit solution available somewhere?

    Spybot or malwarebytes typically do a good job removing browser redirects/hijackers.

    Safer-networking.org for Spybot

    Mwbytes.org for Malwarebytes.

    I've had a few of these on work computers recently. Malwarebytes usually takes care of it, but you have to download it from a clean PC and install it from a USB stick. I found that when I tried to go to Malwarebytes it would usually redirect me to an ad site instead.

    I've also had a user who's gotten some malware that hides ALL his folders in every directory on his PC so it looks like he has nothing installed. I thought that one was pretty fun.

    That one, the redirect one, and a new fake system checker have been the most popular here. Yuck. I keep telling people that they don't just come from nowhere; they allowed it onto the PC somehow. I don't think they believe me though. :/

    Thanks for the replies, but I had no luck with spybot or mwb.
