Searches Redirect/Hijack

By Dogzen
Jan 24, 2010
  1. I went through the 8 steps. This started with getting all sorts of popups with 2010 internet virus. I think I got that taken care of but all my searches get redirected. I tried to update Adobe and Java but was not able to.

    Of all my years of having computers this seems the worst.

    Thanks for helping


    Here are my logs.

    Ran Eset

    Thanks for helping.

    I deleted the 3 items and ran Eset which found one problem. I still have the problem of redirecting.

    Ran Combofix

    Ran combofix, it did its job and found more stuff and deleted it. I was given a few erros about some currupt file(s) and told to run the Chkdsk Utility. I don't know if that would be in the log or not. Google seems to be working correctly. Is their more to do? What should I do about the chjdsk and how?

    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

    Go into My Computer, right-click on the C drive and select "check for errors". Set a check on boot up

    One Issue Still

    I did the Chkdsk. Google and Yahoo seem to be working now, but now when I open certain pages in IE the page gets hung up on wanting to download flash player installer and recovers the page/tab. It wants me to ok it, but IE freezes up. I went to Adobes site to try to download flash but it gets hung up there too. Firefox does not have this problem though. Is this something you can help me with?

    Do you need to see any logs to make sure my searches are cleared up?

    Thanks again.
