Google redirecting links

  1. Hey,

    this is kind of embarassing because I'm a computer science major and I have a problem I can't fix on my own computer, but thats why you ask questions right?

    Any who, I'm having the problem that when ever I search on google using firefox or IE any link I click on gets redirected. Whenever I search in the bottom left hand corner it comes up with "waiting for" which is where I'm guessing my issue is coming from. I attached my Hijckthis log.

    Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

    Jacob, a HijackThis log alone is not enough to troubleshoot a redirect. Please follow the Steps HERE

    After you have run Malwarebytes and SuperAntispyware, rescan with Hijackthis. Attach all three logs when through.

    Note about security: you should temporarily disable the ZoneAlarm firewall while doing the scans.
    Antivirus program: the only process I see running for AV if the try icon for Avira:
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [avgnt] "C:\Program Files\Avira\AntiVir PersonalEdition Classic\avgnt.exe" /min

    I don't even see the program as installed.

    As long as you run BitTorrent, you are going to get malware:
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [BitTorrent DNA] "C:\Program Files\DNA\btdna.exe"

    Update Java:

    Neither of them found anything, to my demise, but here are the new and improved logs.

    Hi Jacob,
    I have resolved many of such issues by using DR.web free utility try and use that.

    Please follow the directions here for removal of the Sony - XCP DRM Rootkit:

    Please reopen HijackThis logs and check System Scan Only. Check the box in each entry below:
    Are you still noticing the on the lower left of the screen:
    "waiting for 7.7.0" The IP in question is owned by the Russian Business Network and they are not a very nice bunch, spammers and what not.
    Known to be Malware sites:
    IE plugins for file extensions or MIME types
    O12 - Plugin for .ipp: C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Plugins\npimth32.dll
    O12 - Plugin for .ipt: C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Plugins\npimth32.dll
    Active X Objects:
    Cloose all Wondows excert HijackThis and click on GicChecked. Reboot into Safe Mode:

    1. Take any of the following process off of Stsrtup:
    Reboot into Normal Mode if you can.
    2. Run new scan with HijacksThis scan and attach the log.

    Tell me of any problems and how the system is performing.

    Ok so the google thing seems to be fixed but the waiting is still in the corner...

    Here is my new log.

    Oh and when ever I try and remove "Sony - XCP DRM Rootkit" I get this error from the command line. "The specified service does not as an installed service"

    Thanks for all the help so far.
