I just recently recovered my computer from Malware Defense following Bleepingcomputer's help for this issue. However, I still have a web search redirect issue, not real bad yet, but appears from reading this thread it can get a lot worse.
Appears the Antivirus Live Malware fix at Bleepingcomputer is the same as what I did to get rid of Malware Defense, but that didn't solve my redirect issue. How did I get rid of the web search redirect issue? Do what I did at all over again? Thanks for any replies.
