    Question Mozilla redirects me to I am wired. net and ask.com help!!

    When some sites are loading, and they take too long time then there appears
    I am wired and media.youlu.com and ask.com, with search words I didnīt asked for!! This is driving me crazy. Searching on the web, no body seems to know I am wired. but here is the address that appears on my browser.http://www3.iamwired.net/ I use Mozilla Firefox and I have no idea of why did this happened, SPECIALLY because always I install a new program Iīm very carefull, I know how some software have boxes that when you mark them they change your default home page, or your browser, or install toolbars, so Iīm very carefull with that. And I also wanīt to tell you that I do not have the ask tool bar, and that the google search engine is the only one that is configured on my browser. What ca I do? Help me please

    Print these instructions out.

    NOTE. If any of the programs listed below refuse to run, try renaming executive file to something else; for instance, rename hijackthis.exe to scanner.exe

    ***VERY IMPORTANT! Make sure, you update Malwarebytes before running the scans.***


    STEP 1. Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware: http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php to your desktop.
    (Malwarebytes is free to use as a manual scanner. Payment is only required if you wish to have it run and update automatically which is not necessary for our purposes)

    * Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
    * At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
    * If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
    * Once the program has loaded, select Perform Quick Scan, then click Scan.
    * When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
    * Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
    * When completed, a log will open in Notepad.
    * Post the log back here.

    The log can also be found here:
    C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\Logs\log-date.txt
    Or at C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\Logs\log-date.txt

    RESTART COMPUTER!

    STEP 2. Download GMER: http://www.gmer.net/files.php, by clicking on Download EXE button.
    Alternative downloads:
    - http://majorgeeks.com/GMER_d5198.html
    - http://www.softpedia.com/get/Interne...ers/GMER.shtml
    Double click on downloaded .exe file, select Rootkit tab and click the Scan button.
    When scan is completed, click Save button, and save the results as gmer.log
    Warning ! Please, do not select the "Show all" checkbox during the scan.
    Post the log to your next reply.

    RESTART COMPUTER

    STEP 3. Download HijackThis:
    http://www.trendsecure.com/portal/en...kthis/download
    by clicking on Installer under Version 2.0.2
    [DO NOT download version 2.0.3 (beta)]
    Install, and run it.
    Post HijackThis log.
    NOTE. If you're using Vista, or 7, right click on HijackThis, and click Run as Administrator
    Do NOT attempt to "fix" anything!


    DO NOT make any other changes to your computer (like installing programs, using other cleaning tools, etc.), until it's officially declared clean!!!
