Also I clicked links in both IE and Firefox and did not get any redirects.  i probably did around 20 links in both browsers.

You should plan to migrate from MS IE 6 to Internet Explorer 8.


I see that you are clear of your original issues.
If you have a problem with these steps, or something does not quite work here, do let me know.

The following few steps will remove tools we used.

  • Download OTC  to your desktop and run it
  • Click Yes to beginning the Cleanup process and remove these components, including this application.
  • You will be asked to reboot the machine to finish the Cleanup process. Choose Yes.

ERUNT you should keep and use on a periodic basis to backup Windows registry.

Delete the following if still present:
RSIT.exe
SecurityCheck.exe
RogueKiller.exe
Stinger.exe
adwcleaner.exe

Use Control Panel >> Add-or-Remove Programs, and uninstall BitDefender if present   

Safer practices & malware prevention
  • Have a hardware router between the incoming internet-modem and your computer.
  • Configure your Antivirus software to check for updates daily, at a time in which you are sure the computer will be on.
  • Check in at Windows Update and install any Important or Critical Updates offered.

  • Make certain that Automatic Updates is enabled.
