  1. Hi,

    Lately I keep getting re-directed to junk sites. It happens a lot when I google topics, but also when I just click on links, I'll get re-directed to irrelevant sites.

    I've run all kinds of virus/malware programs, but nothing seems to help. I've run Avast, Spybot, Malwarebytes, and Super Anti-spyware.

    I followed all the 8 steps posted for the malware removal, but still having problems.

    Attached are my logs,

    any help is appreciated! thanks!

    You need to update Malwarebytes, and run a quick scan only ;)

    Also run IE Reset Fixit Tool:

    Or manually from here http://www.techspot.com/vb/post682762-2.html

    And uninstall SUPERAntispyware from Add/Remove programs, now


    Restart, and provide the updated Malwarebytes log
    And a fresh HJT Scan log

    Well your Malwarebytes database is still old

    And you have McAfee and Avast installed together (ideally uninstall McAfee)
    Update Avast and do a full scan (and the same for malwarebytes ;))

    sorry - i tired to update malwarebytes and it was doing something weird - it just kept saying it was updating over and over again. I uninstalled and re-installed it, thats weird that its still old. I'll try again.
