    Hello,

    First off, I am not very knowledgeable about computers. I have McAfee Security installed and the following were recently detected and removed:

    4/01/10 Downloader-CEW
    3/27/10 AdClicker-CW
    3/27/10 GenericPUP.x!t
    3/27/10 Artemis!43a52F9D6736
    3/22/10 FakeAlert-MK

    Today, when I try doing any Google search, I am redirected to another website. I uninstalled the Google toolbar that I had running, but it made no difference.

    I downloaded Hijackthis and here is the log:

    Hi,

    Please do the following:

    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.

    [​IMG]
    Download GMER Rootkit Scanner from here or here.
    • Extract the contents of the zipped file to desktop.
    • Double click GMER.exe. If asked to allow gmer.sys driver to load, please consent .
    • If it gives you a warning about rootkit activity and asks if you want to run scan...click on NO.

      [​IMG]
      Click the image to enlarge it
    • In the right panel, you will see several boxes that have been checked. Uncheck the following ...
      • Sections
      • 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 post it in your next reply.

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