Hello all, the last few days I've been experiencing some weird symptoms. The first is that, when conducting a search via Google, directly clicking a link sends me to some random site - I have to open a new tab to get anywhere, and sometimes that doesn't even work. And, while browser the 'net, a new window will sometimes crop up. Just a note, I have IE set to prompt me of any and all cookies (I block most by default and re-enable them if needed). I've gotten some IP-attacks as well. Also, Windows/Microsoft Update isnt responding at all. I get the "0x80072EFF" eror message, along with "The website has encountered a problem and cannot display the page you are trying to view." Though, this particular message isn't in their FAQ and whatnot. I also had an issue where my DNS settings would be changed from automatic to some weird address (never wrote it down); so far, though, they haven't cropped back up. I've run a full scan with AVG 9.0, Avast! 5 (both full scan and pre-boot scan) and Antimalwarebytes. I've followed the (revised) 8-step guide that's stickied; DDS was fine, but GMER resulted in Windows crashing about 5 minutes into the scan in the 3 times that I used it (twice in safe mode, once with all protection disabled). Here are the logs I have. Any and all help is much appreciated. All logs will be in the following post(s).
