    Someone please help.

    whenever I go to The famous search website that starts with a G.
    (I cannot say it or the Malware/Trojan will detect it and will cause an error in FireFox)
    It makes me go to a farming website. (???)

    This only happens in FireFox. Please help!!!

    Whats the best anti Malware/Trojan tool to help?!

    EDIT: I forgot to mention that when I came to macrumors on Safari it redirected me to the farming website (WHAT?!?!)

    Check the section called Why am I being redirected to other sites? here, as IT IS NOT A VIRUS:
    Mac Virus/Malware Info by GGJstudios
    There are currently no viruses for Mac OS X in public circulation, only a handful of trojans and other malware, which have to be installed manually via entering the administrator password.
    The only anti-virus you need to protect your Mac is education and common sense.

    It did not work I tried many times.

    I have installed ClamXav and I hope it will solve the problem

    Since it is no virus and probably not a trojan, ClamXAV will not really help.

    Can this thread help?

    Btw, your thread title still does not explain our problem.

    PS: Have you installed any warez recently?

    What exactly did not work? What did you try many times?
    ClamXav won't help, since you don't have malware. Did you check/change your DNS servers, as instructed?
