Why do I keep getting this searchpage

Question

When on a web site and I try to go to another page within that web site I am sent to a search page with an address of http://searchpage.cc/1520/. I have gone into Internet Option and tried listing that site as restricted but to no avail. It happens on any web site I have been on. For example I am trying to download Adobe Reader. When I fill out the info on the particulars and then click on Download it first goes to the Adobe page and the within a second goes to this page. I hit the back button, go back to the Adobe page and again it load this search page. How do I fix this problem?

Your webbrowser has been hijack.

Ok Please do the following & we will see if we can get it sorted for you.

Download CWShredder from http://www.computercops.biz/downloads-file-349.html & run it Select the fix button & it will get rid of everything related to CoolWebSearch Close ALL other programs & windows, including IE, before running CWShredder

Download & instal Adaware from http://majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=506

& update it B4 scanning

In settings under 'scanning,' have it set to

'scan within archives,'

'scan active processes,'

'scan registry,'

'deepscan registry'

'scan my IE Favourites for banned URL's,'

'scan my host's file.'

Also in tweaks under 'cleaning engine' set it to 'Automatically try to unregister objects prior to deletion.'

Remove what it finds by placing a check in the box to the left of the object.

Download & instal Spybot S&D from http://www.safer-networking.org/index.php?page=download Update it B4 scanning Go into settings & have it check for Beta releases also & download if available.

After the scan is complete, have spybot fix everything marked RED

On the page that first opens when you start Spybot there is an option to immunise, you should do this In the immunise section there is also a link to download Spywareblaster Download that & you can keep it updated by selecting the same link that you use to download it.

Good Luck! hope i help.
