search engines wont work

By sandysjeams ·
No search engines will work on my computer. Says cant display page or just stays a white screen. I can use the internet fine, if I type in an address directly. I run XP, and CA Security Suite that is anti spy/spam and virus protection. I have run all updates and scanned an it says no threats. can anyone tell me what to try next?

Try MBAM

by seanferd In reply to search engines wont work

http://malwarebytes.org Free version is just fine.

Clear your browser caches after downloading. Install the app and let it update if it wants to. You may want to boot into Safe Mode before running it - it will have a better chance at catching any browser hijack or other malware this way. If you get positive results, let it clean out the malware. Rinse and repeat until it finds nothing.

You may have a virus, and if I had to guess you the <a href="http://www.ihowtoremove.com/open-cloud-security-virus/" target="_blank" >open cloud virus</a> as it completely shuts down the browser and takes control. MBAM will work and its free but your probably better buy the Full version as the free version will nag you to death. Also, spyware doctor works good but not free and you will need to install in safe mode too.

Good luck!
