For a couple weeks, my Google results have been directing me to the wrong pages. I stupidly ignored it, until whatever the problem is ended up downloading a "Security Tool" virus on my computer. I was able to remove the virus, and my computer seems clean but search engines are still being hijacked. Malwarebytes and Ad-Aware aren't finding anything, and I can't download Spybot S&D or anything else - the hijacker seems to be blocking those. Here's my Hijack This log, any help will be much appreciated! :)

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.


NEXT



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.



    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
