  1. Whenever i use google and i click a link it opens a new tab on firefox and it then redirects me to everydayhealth or something stupid like that. Also i've noticed that it will say or something. When i downloaded hijackthis malware and superanti for the 8 steps i had to change their name so that i could open them.

    here are the logs

    Hello mikeonabike

    If you havenĀ“t done it ? Then uninstall -> BitTorrent DNA
    From add/remove programs in controlpanel.


    Please download combofix here ->

    Before Saving it to Desktop, please rename it to something like 123.exe to stop malware from disabling it.

    Now, please make sure no other programs are running, close all other windows.

    Please double click on the file you downloaded. Follow the onscreen prompts to start the scan.
    Once the scanning process has started please DO NOT click on the Combofix window or attempt to use your computer as this can cause the scanning process to stall.
    It may take a while to complete scanning and this is normal.

    You will be disconnected from the internet and your desktop icons/toolbars will disappear during scanning, do not worry, this is normal and it will be restored after
    scanning has completed.

    Combofix will create a logfile and display it after your computer has rebooted. Usually located in c:\combofix.txt, please attach it to your next post

    Ok just to be sure that it not the virus that i had before that redirects me to stupid pages as well.
    can you download rootrepeal(google it[/B]) and attach the log.

    This was missed: No action taken.
    It means you did NOT check the line for Malwarebytes to remove malware:
    Go back and UPDATE Mbam, be sure to check/Remove Selected> scan again> Attach a new log

    There is a similar line in Superantispyware- did you check it? If not, repeat same as for Mbam.

    When you have re-run these, go ahead wit Combofix as instructed. Hold on RootRepeal for now.

    If needed, put Combofix on a flash drive using non-problem system, then install on the problem system.

    Please attach new logs for Mbam ansdSAS and include the Combofix report for Touch.
