I first encountered this problem last night and have spent most of the day trying to fix it. This malware I have become infected with was able to completely block access to popular anti-virus and anti-malware websites and in-software updates for programs such as Ad-aware, Spybot, and AVG without using the hosts file. This aspect of the malware is being actively discussed here: en.kioskea.net/forum/affich-43800-avg-windows-update-failure With the information from the above linked site I ran a program called 'Trojan Remover' which fixed my inability to browse anti-virus websites and allowed me to update my programs. Unfortunately, I still get occasional popups directing towards sagipsul.com. I found others with these popups through google and that directed me to these forums where I followed the 8 rules and ran CCleaner, Malwarebytes, SuperAntiSpyware, and Hijack This. Since completion I no longer appear to get popups but am afraid that something still is resident on my computer in the background gathering information. In posting here I am hoping for confirmation of this malware being gone, or any further steps I must take in order to remove it. Below is my attached hijackthis log, Malwarebytes log, and SuperAntoSpyware log. Thank you very much for your time.
