browser Hijack

  1. Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh! My browser is hijacked and keeps redirecting my to sites like heavy.com, 312guide.com, genuineclicks.com and other such dodgy sites.
    I've run some cleanup programmes like hitman pro, advanced window care and PC-clean but to no avail.
    Attached is the hijackthis file. Can someone please decipher it for me and tell me what's going on.
    Cheers,
    Scrub.

    I've checked the HJT log over and to me it looks clean. But let Howard or rik check it over, as i am still in training at MRU.

    Please read this: Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions Follow all instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT, AVG Antispyware and Combofix logs as attachments into this thread, but only after doing the above.

    Also let me know the results of the AVG Anti-Rootkit.


    Regards Jase :)
