Hi guys, im new to the forums here, hopefully I can get an idea of how to stop this. Im using Windows XP Pro SP3.

Lately I have been getting redirects in google from chrome and firefox.

I use VIPRE antivirus premium, it says there is nothing wrong. Should I try download and install malware bytes just to be safe?

However even more suspiciously, at startup VIPRE has been alerting me to a "setup.exe" file attempting to execute, I block it everytime, but TODAY it came up with "antivir.exe" wants to run "setup", I assume its trying to trick me... I block it also.

Here is what VIPRE is telling me about the executable.

Attempted to modify the following file

Everytime it is trying to open C:\WINDOWS\Temp\XXXX\setup.exe where XXXX is different each time.

Since I got the "antivir.exe" I went googling for some solutions and found this.

THIS doesn't solve my problem though, I havn't actually installed the file because I block setup.exe everytime, so it doesn't actually help me with removing it ^^ Is it hiding in an svchost? Either way how can I stop it?

Hope someone has a clue better than I do! Off to work so Ill be back later today if there are any questions, thanks guys.
