Hey guys. I did the 8 step thing. removed a couple of trojans and root kits. Seems like after getting online it gets kinda slow and i get that dreaded google.com/webhp redirect problem. It auto pops up random sites. None of which are bad but spam reguardless. I have the log files but only for gmer and that .srs file. I originally was infected with the AV.exe fake spyware scanner. I got rid of it though by doing some research on the forums. Thanks for any help offered! UPDATE: I forgot to add that I scanned that computer with panda, malwarebytes, and other various popular virus spyware scanners recommended on the forums and Cnet. All are scanning clean. Even the deep scans. So this virus must be something left behind. This virus or browser hijacker wont let me get windows updates either...it acts as if the internet is offline when its really not.
