Google search being redirected

By KennyMcCormick
May 17, 2010
  1. Hi guys, Lately My google search is being hijacked and being redirected to random sites. It happens a lot now that's making me worried and frustrated. I know that there is a spyware somewhere but I all of my anti-spyware programs arent detecting any of it. I have avg, spywaredoctor, blacklight. reimage and malwarebytes.. none of which detect anything -_- I attaced the HJL file. Please help me! I also attached a screenshot where I see the that same icon (circled in red) every single time I get redirected.

    Please download ComboFix from Here or Here to your Desktop.

    **Note: In the event you already have Combofix, this is a new version that I need you to download. It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop**
    1. Please, never rename Combofix unless instructed.
    2. Close any open browsers.
    3. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.
      • Very Important! Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan. They can interfere with ComboFix or remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results".
      • Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive. If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask.
      NOTE1. If Combofix asks you to install Recovery Console, please allow it.
      NOTE 2. If Combofix asks you to update the program, always do so.
      • Close any open browsers.
      • WARNING: Combofix will disconnect your machine from the Internet as soon as it starts
      • Please do not attempt to re-connect your machine back to the Internet until Combofix has completely finished.
      • If there is no internet connection after running Combofix, then restart your computer to restore back your connection.
    4. Please open Notepad
      • Click Start , then Run
      • Type notepad .exe in the Run Box.
    5. Now copy/paste the entire content of the codebox below into the Notepad window:

      Code:
      TDL::
      C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\disk.sys
      
    6. Save the above as CFScript.txt
    7. Then drag the CFScript.txt into ComboFix.exe as depicted in the animation below. This will start ComboFix again.

      [​IMG]
    8. After reboot, (in case it asks to reboot), please post the following logs into your next reply:
      • Combofix.txt

    **Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall**

    Make sure, you re-enable your security programs, when you're done with Combofix.

    DO NOT make any other changes to your computer (like installing programs, using other cleaning tools, etc.), until it's officially declared clean!!!

    Let's see, if we can look at your computer booting from an external source.

    You will need USB flash drive to move information from bad computer to a working computer.

    You need to download two programs.

    First

    ISO Burner this will allow you to burn REATOGO-X-PE ISO to a cd and make it bootable. Just install the programm, from there on it's fairly automatic (Instructions)

    Second

    • Download OTLPE.iso and burn to a CD using ISO Burner. NOTE: This file is 270.3 MB in size so it may take some time to download.
    • When downloaded double click and this will then open ISOBurner to burn the file to CD
    • Reboot your system (Non working computer) using the boot CD you just created.
      • Note. If you do not know how to set your computer to boot from CD follow the steps HERE
    • Your system should now display a REATOGO-X-PE desktop.
    • Double-click on the OTLPE icon.
    • When asked Do you wish to load the remote registry, select Yes
    • When asked Do you wish to load remote user profile(s) for scanning, select Yes
    • Ensure the box Automatically Load All Remaining Users is checked and press OK
    • OTL should now start. Change the following settings
      • Change Drivers to All
      • Change Registry to All
      • Under Custom Scan box paste this in:

        netsvcs
        %SYSTEMDRIVE%\*.exe
        /md5start
        eventlog.dll
        scecli.dll
        netlogon.dll
        cngaudit.dll
        sceclt.dll
        ntelogon.dll
        logevent.dll
        iaStor.sys
        nvstor.sys
        atapi.sys
        IdeChnDr.sys
        viasraid.sys
        AGP440.sys
        vaxscsi.sys
        nvatabus.sys
        viamraid.sys
        nvata.sys
        nvgts.sys
        iastorv.sys
        ViPrt.sys
        eNetHook.dll
        ahcix86.sys
        KR10N.sys
        nvstor32.sys
        ahcix86s.sys
        nvrd32.sys
        symmpi.sys
        adp3132.sys
        mv61xx.sys
        userinit.exe
        explorer.exe
        /md5stop
        %systemroot%\*. /mp /s
        %systemroot%\system32\*.dll /lockedfiles
        %systemroot%\Tasks\*.job /lockedfiles
        %systemroot%\system32\drivers\*.sys /lockedfiles
        %systemroot%\System32\config\*.sav
    • Press Run Scan to start the scan.
    • When finished, the file will be saved in drive C:\OTL.txt
    • Copy this file to your USB drive.
    • Please post the contents of the C:\OTL.txt file in your reply.

    Great news :)


    Your computer is clean [​IMG]

    1. We need to reset system restore to prevent your computer from being accidentally reinfected by using some old restore point(s). We'll create fresh, clean restore point.

    Turn off System Restore:

    - Windows XP:
    1. Click Start.
    2. Right-click the My Computer icon, and then click Properties.
    3. Click the System Restore tab.
    4. Check "Turn off System Restore".
    5. Click Apply.
    6. When turning off System Restore, the existing restore points will be deleted. Click Yes to do this.
    7. Click OK.
    - Windows Vista and 7:
    1. Click Start.
    2. Right-click the Computer icon, and then click Properties.
    3. Click on System Protection under the Tasks column on the left side
    4. Click on Continue on the "User Account Control" window that pops up
    5. Under the System Protection tab, find Available Disks
    6. Uncheck the box for any drive you wish to disable system restore on (in most cases, drive "C:")
    7. When turning off System Restore, the existing restore points will be deleted. Click "Turn System Restore Off" on the popup window to do this.
    8. Click OK

    2. Restart computer.

    3. Turn System Restore on.

    4. Make sure, Windows Updates are current.

    5. If any Trojan was listed among your infection(s), make sure, you change all of your on-line important passwords (bank account(s), secured web sites, etc.) immediately!

    6. Download, and install WOT (Web OF Trust): http://www.mywot.com/. It'll warn you (in most cases) about dangerous web sites.

    7. Run defrag at your convenience.

    8. Read How did I get infected?, With steps so it does not happen again!: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic2520.html

    9. Please, let me know, how is your computer doing.
