    Have developed a problem, possibly malware that I think has come from data stick transferred from another machine.


    It has changed my c drive to chess (c:), see attached , although when I look at properties, there is no reference.


    I also can’t double click it though my computer, it tries to find the application, I have to use explore.

    I have ran usual spyware, adware a/v etc, checked registry and removed any ref to chess.exe ran hijack this.(log below)

    Also searched Google and found very little, searches suggest its a Trojan variant W32.Ogid but no refs for removal

    Its main symptom appears to be that when I perform a search in google and hit one of the links, it goes off to another search engine. If I go back and hit link again its fine, although this could obviously be another different problem

    Any ideas

    Hiya

    Are you still having this problem? If so, can we see a fresh HijackThis log?

    You also seem to be running an older version, so this is a newer one:


    Click here to download HJTInstall.exe
    • Save HJTInstall.exe to your desktop.
    • Doubleclick on the HJTInstall.exe icon on your desktop.
    • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis .
    • Click on Install.
    • It will create a HijackThis icon on the desktop.
    • Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
    • Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
    • Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
    • Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
    • DO NOT have Hijackthis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.


    Regards

    eddie
