When is attempt a Google search, i am directed to a "new" search engine, named BLEKKO.

A new page pops up, showing the works " A new browser tab for Blekko"

When I attempt to create an email in Yahoo Mail, the following is automatically inserted in the text:

new browser tab

powered by blekko
ABOUT HELP DISABLE © 2012 blekko, inc. .


I have Kaspersky Pure, and have never run into any virus problems before. I'm running a new Kaspersky update and new scan at this moment.

Does Kaspersky Pure get rid of this virus? If not, what is a safe way to get rid of it? It's similar to the "Google redirect" but the virus on my PC has the Blekko insert in all my new emails.

I am a novice when it comes to viruses and such things.

Thanks,

Patrick B
