Help needed - malware

  1. Hi,

    I tried to use Google today and found that each link was to an advert rather than the page in question. I used another search engine to find out about this, and it said there was malware in my system. I immediately ran my anti-virus software (Kaspersky) on a full scan, and also followed the instructions on the TechSpot topic (topic 58138). Despite this, Google remains the same. As instructed, I have attached the logs from Malwarebytes antimalware, SuperAntiSpyware, and Hijack this.

    I would really appreciate any help or advice anyone can give me on how to solve this problem.

    Kind regards,

    Did you remove anything before as these log show little!

    Download SDFix to Desktop.

    On Desktop run SDdFix It will run (install) then close.

    Then reboot into Safe Mode

    As the computer starts up, tap the F8 key several times.

    On the Boot menu Choose Safe Mode.

    Click thu all the prompts to get to desktop.

    At Desktop
    My Computer C: drive. Double-click to open.

    Look for a folder called SD Fix. Double-click to enter SD Fix.

    Double-click to RunThis.bat. Type Y to begin.

    SD Fix does its job.

    When prompted hit the enter key to restart the computer

    Your computer will reboot.

    On normal restart the Fixtool will run again and complete the removal process then say Finished,
    Hit the Enter key to end the script and load your desktop icons.

    Once the desktop is up, the SDFix report will open on screen and also be saved to the SDFix folder as Report.txt.
    Attach the Report.txt file to your next post.
    Download ComboFix

    NOTE: If you have had ComboFix more than a few days old delete and re-download.

    Get it here:
    Or here:

    Double click combofix.exe follow the prompts.

    When finished, it will open a log.
    Attach the log and a new HJT log in your next reply.

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