    When you have finished, please paste the 3 logs into your next reply.
    The HJT logs alone is not enough to see the malware.

    Bumping a thread in just a few hours is frowned upon. I'm helping others. Patience works really well in this forum.

    I took a quick look at the logs and don't see anything obvious. You didn't give much description of the problem. Many problem reported as 'Google Redirects' aren't redirects at all- so I ask these questions:
    Since you question a Google Redirect, I'd like you to describe what's happening:
    1. If you type a word in the Google search box, and then choose one of the sites that comes up, what happens?
    2. Does a different site load?
    3. Does any site load?
    4. Are the sites the same/different?
    5. Are you sure you're not seeing a Google page saying DNS server couldn't be contacted?

    Please download ComboFix HERE:
    • With ComboFix, at the download window, please rename it to Combo-Fix(.exe) before downloading it.
      Important! Save the renamed download to your desktop.

    • Double click on the setup file on the desktop to run
    • If prompted to download and install the Recovery Console, please do so.
      (Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.)
    • If prompted to update, please allow.

    • When finished, it will produce a log.Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply.

    Hi sorry ive not got back.The problem seems to be resolved.

    I only ran the first three files you gave me and they seem to have fixed it.

    Is that possible or is the problem still there?

    I don't have enough information to answer this. But if you want to stop, I'll leave the following and close the thread:

    Remove all of the tools we used and the files and folders they created
    • Download OTCleanIt by OldTimer and save it to your Desktop.
    • Double click OTCleanIt.exe.
    • Click the CleanUp! button.
    • If you are prompted to Reboot during the cleanup, select Yes.
    • The tool will delete itself once it finishes.

    Note: If you receive a warning from your firewall or other security programs regarding OTC attempting to contact the internet, please allow it to do so.

    You should now set a new Restore Point and remove the old restore points to prevent infection from any previous Restore Points.
    • Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools
    • Click "System Restore".
    • Choose "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next".
    • Give the Restore Point a name> click "Create".
    • Go back and follow the path to > System Tools.
    • Choose Disc Cleanup> let the files compress
    • Click "OK" to select the partition or drive you want.
    • Click the "More Options" Tab.
    • Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous Restore Points except the newly created one.

    More details and screenshots for Disk Cleanup in Windows Vista can be found here.

    The full path is: All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> Disc Cleanup> Let files compress> Choose More Options tab> In system Restore section choose Cleanupto remove all previous Restore Points except the newly created one.[/list]
