Default-Search.Net Redirect

4 posts in this topic

I have a problem with my default new tabs being redirected to a page http://www.default-search.net/?sid=712&aid=44002. When I open Chrome, all my regular tabs appear, but when I click a link in another program that pulls up Chrome or opens a new tab in Chrome, this search page shows up. I have run Adaware Pro several times and it doesn't seem to solve the issue.

Attached are the two log files from FRST.

Thank you sincerely in advance for your help and please let me know if there are any details I can include to make things clearer.

Hi John,

When did this problem start?
 

Please, save AdwCleaner on the desktop: https://toolslib.net/downloads/viewdownload/1-adwcleaner/

Turn off all programs, including browsers.
Double-click on AdwCleaner to start the program.

Click on the Scan button.
Wait until the search has finished.

Click on the Log file button.
A report will be displayed, copy its content and paste into your reply.
If the report isn't displayed, it's available as C:\AdwCleaner\AdwCleaner[S1].txt.
