Search results being corrupted

By scottb4857 ·
I recently cleaned a badly infected machine - all is good now except one thing: All search results from Google are being corrupted. On every results page the first 8 or so are items completely unrelated to the search. I have checked the system with Symantec Corporate Anti-virus, spybot S&D, PCTools Spyware Doctor, Ad-Aware SE, Windows Defender, Kaspersky online and Trend Micro Housecall online. None of them found any problems. I looked at the BHO's and toolbars and disabled everything, but still the same problem.

Anyone have some suggestions on where to try next?

Cure browser problems

Before doing this, you should create a restore point.

Go to internet options -- advanced -- reset.

Hopefully, this will fix the problem. Also, you could try Firefox.

Good luck.

Yep, that was it. I had done that a couple of times earlier, but it was before I finally removed all the infections. Thanks for reminding me to do the simple stuff.

Thanks again,
