8 Steps Completed, but I'm still my search engine still redirects me

  1. Hello,

    I've completed your steps after trying various others programs to no avail. I've completed your steps and fixed various issues, but I'm still having one issue. When I use internet explorer I'm redirected to others sites. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've attached all logs.

    Note: I used Super AnitSpyware prior to seeing your 8-steps, so I've included as I'm not sure if it might be helpful as well. The one labled"ur process" is the one that was done during the 8 steps, white the one labled "preprocesses" was completed before the 8 steps.

    Thank you in advance!

    Thanks for you helps, here is whate happend:

    Instead of deleting 19 files, I deleted 81 filesin O18.


    When I went to remove the checks under the web tab none were hecked, so I went on to the next step.


    My recycle bin was empty.

    Once I ran ComboFix, it gave me an error. "This machine does not have the 'Microsoft Windows recovery console' installed Without it, ComboFix shall not attempt the fixing of some serious infections." Do I click yes or no?

    I believe OS23 is ATT wireless internet, we used the flash drive once when our internet was down. Am I correct?

    Again, thanks for your time trying to fix my headache.

    Okay. I didn't count the 018 entries, but 81 is more likely than 17. How did you come up with '17'?

    As for Combofix, there is a line in the instructions that says this:
    If prompted to download and install the Recovery Console, please do so.
    (Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.)


    This is not an error. It is advising you that you do not have this and we recommend to that install it. Since you do not have a Recovery Console, you should install one: Run Combofix and when you get the prompts, follow this:
    Install Recovery Console- Combofix:
    • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.
    • When prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.
    • Query- Recovery Console image

    • Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:

    • Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.
    • When finished, it will produce a log.Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply.
