Virus problem: Internet search engines open random sites

  1. Hello.

    I have been experiencing problems with my computer for awhile. The current main problem, is that when I use google to search the internet, it will automatically direct me to another site ( is one of them). The computer it self also seems to be running slower than it usually does.

    This was happening more often just a few weeks ago, and I also could not connect to Windows Update for awhile. I ran a bunch of virus scans and downloaded all of the anti-spyware programs that I could, which took care of some of my problems.

    I ran the 6 step virus removal program and here are my resulting logs. (i attached the DDS files because they were too long). After running the programs my computer seems to be operating very sluggishly.

    Thank you very much in advance for any assistance that you can offer.

    Welcome aboard [​IMG]

    Please, re-run DDS in normal mode and post fresh logs.

    When done....

    Download MBRCheck to your desktop

    Double click MBRCheck.exe to run (Vista and Windows 7 users, right click and select Run as Administrator).
    It will show a black screen with some data on it.
    A report called MBRcheckxxxx.txt will be on your desktop
    Open this report and post its content in your next reply.


    Please download ComboFix from Here or Here to your Desktop.

    **Note: In the event you already have Combofix, this is a new version that I need you to download. It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop**
    1. Please, never rename Combofix unless instructed.
    2. Close any open browsers.
    3. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.
      • Very Important! Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan. They can interfere with ComboFix or remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results".
      • Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive. If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask.
      NOTE1. If Combofix asks you to install Recovery Console, please allow it.
      NOTE 2. If Combofix asks you to update the program, always do so.
      • Close any open browsers.
      • WARNING: Combofix will disconnect your machine from the Internet as soon as it starts
      • Please do not attempt to re-connect your machine back to the Internet until Combofix has completely finished.
      • If there is no internet connection after running Combofix, then restart your computer to restore back your connection.
    4. Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
    5. When finished, it will produce a report for you.
    6. Please post the "C:\ComboFix.txt"
    **Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall**

    Make sure, you re-enable your security programs, when you're done with Combofix.

    DO NOT make any other changes to your computer (like installing programs, using other cleaning tools, etc.), until it's officially declared clean!!!

    Thank you Broni for your speedy reply.

    Earlier my computer wasn't functioning well enough to run in normal mode, but I guess the startup in Safe Mode Cured it for now.

    I have attached the new DDS files, as well as the Combofix file. The MBRCheck is below.

    What really cured your computer (not totally yet), was Combofix.

    I suggest, you uninstall HitmanPro, which is nothing else, but a bunch of free tools gathered in one program. On a top of it, HitmanPro is having copyright issues.

    1. Please open Notepad
    • Click Start , then Run
    • Type notepad .exe in the Run Box.

    2. Now copy/paste the entire content of the codebox below into the Notepad window:

    c:\documents and settings\All Users\Application Data\avg9
    uInternet Settings,ProxyOverride = <local>
    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\shared tools\msconfig\startupreg\Alcmtr]

    3. Save the above as CFScript.txt

    4. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs again, so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.

    5. Then drag the CFScript.txt into ComboFix.exe as depicted in the animation below. This will start ComboFix again.


    6. After reboot, (in case it asks to reboot), please post the following reports/logs into your next reply:
    • Combofix.txt

    I looked for Hitman Pro in the Add/Remove Programs as well as in the start menu and couldn't find anything. Is there a place where it might be hiding?

    Here are the combofix results:

    Maybe just some leftovers.
    We'll get rid of those manually.

    Uninstall Combofix:
    Go Start > Run [Vista users, go Start>"Start search"]
    Type in:
    Combofix /Uninstall
    Note the space between the "Combofix" and the "/Uninstall"
    Click OK (Vista users - press Enter).
    Restart computer.


    Download OTL to your Desktop.

    * Double click on the icon to run it. Make sure all other windows are closed and to let it run uninterrupted.
    * Under the Custom Scan box paste this in:

    drivers32 /all
    %systemroot%\*. /mp /s
    %systemroot%\system32\*.dll /lockedfiles
    %systemroot%\Tasks\*.job /lockedfiles
    %systemroot%\system32\user32.dll /md5
    %systemroot%\system32\ws2_32.dll /md5
    %systemroot%\system32\ws2help.dll /md5
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update\Results\Install|LastSuccessTime /rs

    * Click the Quick Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
    • When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows: OTL.txt and Extras.txt. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
    • Please copy (Edit->Select All, Edit->Copy) the contents of these files, one at a time, and post them back here.

    Update your Java version here:

    Note 1: UNCHECK any pre-checked toolbar and/or software offered with the Java update. The pre-checked toolbars/software are not part of the Java update.

    Note 2: The Java Quick Starter (JQS.exe) adds a service to improve the initial startup time of Java applets and applications. If you don't want to run another extra service, go to Start > Control Panel > Java > Advanced > Miscellaneous and uncheck the box for Java Quick Starter. Click OK and restart your computer.

    Now, we need to remove old Java version and its remnants...

    Download JavaRa to your desktop and unzip it to its own folder
    • Run JavaRa.exe (Vista users! Right click on JavaRa.exe, click Run As Administrator), pick the language of your choice and click Select. Then click Remove Older Versions.
    • Accept any prompts.


    Run OTL
    • Under the Custom Scans/Fixes box at the bottom, paste in the following

    It looks like you didn't run JavaRa (my reply #8) to remove old Java versions.
    Please, do it now.


    OTL Clean-Up
    Clean up with OTL:

    * Double-click OTL.exe to start the program.
    * Close all other programs apart from OTL as this step will require a reboot
    * On the OTL main screen, press the CLEANUP button
    * Say Yes to the prompt and then allow the program to reboot your computer.

    If you still have any tools or logs leftover on your computer you can go ahead and delete those off of your computer now.

    Thank you again for all of your help. I really appreciate you spending your time helping me out.

    I had run JavaRa previously, and noticed that it showed up in one of the logs, but assumed that maybe it was showing somethign that was previously deleted. I tried running it again, and it still does not remove either ver. 16 or 20. I tried to go to Add/Remove programs, and when manually trying to remove ver 16 it says "Fatal Error During Installation"

    That's fine. It may be just dead listing.

    I assume, your computer is doing fine?

    It is. I have had limited use in the past few days, but i have yet to be redirected and it seems to be running smoothly. Thank you again.
