Being redirected to other sites

  1. Hello, I am having a problem with being redirected to other sites no matter what search engine I use. The only way I can get directly to a site is to manually type or copy and paste into the browser bar. I have performed a virus scan through Mcafee and it said it quarantined 7 trojans and removed 1, but that did not fix the problem. I have performed all steps from this site regarding removing malware and will attatch my logs..any help would greatly be appreciated.

    Mainly going by the MBAM log, it looks like a rootkit. Please follow these directions for use of combofix.

    Download here:

    http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/ComboFix.exe
    or here:
    http://www.forospyware.com/sUBs/ComboFix.exe

    When saving combofix to your PC, rename it to 123.com so malware won't disable it. Launch combofix (now titled 123.com), allow it to download and install the Recovery Console if it prompts you. Once the scan starts, DO NOT TOUCH YOUR PC, clicking anywhere while combofix is running is enough to make your system become non-responsive. Be forewarned that combofix will make your desktop dissapear and will also reboot your PC as needed. This is normal.

    Once combofix has run, run MBAM again and remove whatever it finds.

    Post logs when done please.
