Smile I keep getting redirected to other sites when I click on links in Google Searches
Hello everyone.
For the past couple of weeks every time I do a Google Search and click on a link, I get redirected to other sites, sites like dating sites, comparison sites or search engine sites. I have attempted to find any viruses or addware/malware/spyware on my laptop using Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes anti malware tool but all to no avail.

After searching around I noticed I was not alone in this situation and most people who have been able to solve it have used a program called HiJackThis and then someone points out affected files or something. I'm a computer newbie.

Here is my HiJackThis file log.

Hi

Please do the following:



Please download MBRCheck.exe to your desktop.
  • Be sure to disable your security programs
  • Double click on the file to run it (Vista and Windows 7 users will have to confirm the UAC prompt)
  • A window will open on your desktop
  • if an unknown bootcode is found you will have further options available to you, at this time press N then press Enter twice.
  • If nothing unusual is found just press Enter
  • A .txt file named MBRCheck_mm.dd.yy_hh.mm.ss should appear on your desktop.
  • Please post the contents of that file.



NEXT



Please download DDS from either of these links

LINK 1
LINK 2

and save it to your desktop.
  • Disable any script blocking protection
  • Double click dds.pif to run the tool.
  • When done, two DDS.txt's will open.
  • Save both reports to your desktop.
---------------------------------------------------
Please include the contents of the following in your next reply:

DDS.txt
Attach.txt.



NEXT


Download GMER Rootkit Scanner from here to your desktop. It will be a randomly named executable.
  • Double click the exe file.
  • If it gives you a warning about rootkit activity and asks if you want to run scan...click on NO, then use the following settings for a more complete scan.


    Click the image to enlarge it
  • In the right panel, you will see several boxes that have been checked. Ensure the following are unchecked
    • IAT/EAT
    • Drives/Partition other than Systemdrive (typically C:\)
    • Show All (don't miss this one)
  • Then click the Scan button & wait for it to finish.
  • Once done click on the [Save..] button, and in the File name area, type in "Gmer.txt" or it will save as a .log file which cannot be uploaded to your post.
  • Save it where you can easily find it, such as your desktop, and attach it in reply.

**Caution**
Rootkit scans often produce false positives. Do NOT take any action on any "<--- ROOKIT" entries

Thank you so far!

Hi,

Please do the following:

Download ComboFix from either of these locations:
Link 1
Link 2


VERY IMPORTANT !!!
Save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop

* IMPORTANT - Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools. If you have difficulty properly disabling your protective programs, refer to this link here
  • Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.
As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.
  • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.
**Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.


  • Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:


  • Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.
When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply.
Notes:
1. Do not mouse-click Combofix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.
2. Do not "re-run" Combofix. If you have a problem, reply back for further instructions.



Please make sure you include the combo fix log in your next reply as well as describe how your computer is running now

Hi,

I downloaded ComboFix and saved it to my desktop as instructed, but when I double click on it, it does nothing. I have also tried running it in compatability mode for Windows Service Pack 2 but it doesn't seem to do anything.

Any ideas?

Hi

delete the copy that you have on your desktop > download a fresh copy but rename it to svchost.exe before saving it

now try it . if it still wont run...boot into safe mode and run it from safe mode

To Enter Safemode
  • Go to Start> Shut off your Computer> Restart
  • As the computer starts to boot-up, Tap the F8 KEY repeatedly,
  • this will bring up a menu.
  • Use the Up and Down Arrow Keys to scroll up to Safemode
  • Then press the Enter Key on your Keyboard
  • go into your usual account

I tried renaming it svchost.exe after re downloading it, and it still doesn't work. Even when I go into Safe Mode, sometimes it just will show the green bar then disappear, other times it will come up with the terms and conditions then disappear.

Is there any way you can tell me if there are any suspicious processes running on my laptop from the data I have sent already? I have seen other cases online where people have been told of suspicious processes running from using HiJackThis. So far, all of the reports I have seen, after closing processes that were seen as suspicious, have said that the redirecting no longer happened.

Sorry if i appear like I'm questioning your knowledge, I am very grateful for your help, but you must understand how annoying this is.

Hi,

I do believe you are infected with a hidden rootkit so you wont see any suspicious processes running.

The fact that the infection is shutting down the tool I am trying to use is an indication of that.


we have other options:

Please run the following tool

Note: If "cure" is not presented as an option, then choose "skip" - do not choose "delete" or "quarantine"

Please download TDSSKiller.zip
  • Extract it to your desktop
  • Double click TDSSKiller.exe
  • Press Start Scan
    • Only if Malicious objects are found then ensure Cure is selected
    • Then click Continue > Reboot now
  • Copy and paste the log in your next reply
    • A copy of the log will be saved automatically to the root of the drive (typically C:\)


NEXT

  • Download OTL and save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the icon to run it.
  • Make sure all other windows are closed and to let it run uninterrupted.
  • When the window appears, underneath Output at the top, make sure Standard output is selected.
  • Under the Extra Registry section, check Use SafeList
  • Download the following file scan.txt to your Desktop. Click here to download it. You may need to right click on it and select "Save"
  • Double click inside the Custom Scan box at the bottom
  • A window will appear saying "Click Ok to load a custom scan from a file or Cancel to cancel"
  • Click the Ok button and navigate to the file scan.txt which we just saved to your desktop
  • Select scan.txt and click Open. Writing will now appear under the Custom Scan box
  • Click the Run 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 in your topic

The OTL.txt file is 9,210KB big, when compressed to a .zip folder it is still 674KB, which exceeds the 500KB limit on attachment uploads.

I tried to use ComboFix again, the program ran successfully until it was creating the log file, at this point a blue screen appeared telling me Windows was shutting down for protection or something. And it mentioned something about Dumping Physical Memory?

did you reboot the machine, that occurs sometimes when a certain type of infection is onboard,
ComboFix should continue after a reboot and produce a log

see if one was created in C:\ ComboFix.txt

as for the unbelievably large OTL log (I've never seen one that big, I'm almost afraid to look at it lol)

please upload it to Mediafire and post the sharing link.
and post the sharing link
