Okay so I'm freaking out here because my search engine is 9/10 redirecting! I've used google, yahoo, and even msn. When that didn't work I went to Opera, and I was still being redirected. Thankfully, as long as I type the webpage I want to go to on top like, www.bleepingcomputer.com instead of going on google, it takes me wherever I want to go. Or I only search it up on the search engine and hit "catch". Its worked for a few days but I've noticed my computer isn't as fast as it used to be.

I have ran Microsoft Security Essentials, MBAM, Spybot Search & Destroy, and CCleaner. I have no clue of what else to do. By the way this is my first time posting, sorry if I did something wrong!

Hello, first I am moving this to the Am I Infected forum as a DDS log is required here.

Avoid any Reg and Temp file cleaners for now.

Please run this tool How to remove Google Redirects Posy it's log,,,
A log file named TDSSKiller_version_date_time_log.txt (i.e. TDSSKiller.2.4.0.0_27.07.2010_09.o7.26_log.txt) will be created and saved to the root directory (usually Local Disk C:).
Copy and paste the contents of that file in your next reply.


Rerun MBAM (MalwareBytes) like this:

Open MBAM in normal mode and click Update tab, select Check for Updates,when done
click Scanner tab,select Quick scan and scan (normal mode).
After scan click Remove Selected, Post new scan log and Reboot into normal mode.

Please ask any needed questions,post logs and Let us know how the PC is running now.

Sorry! Actually, I'm not very smart at all in computer stuff so I don't know what DDS log stands for, even less what it means.

For the TDSSKiller I ran a scan but it found nothing.

I Reran MBAM. This is the log:

It all OK, sorry I forget myself ,that not everyone knows what DDS is. If this step doesn't stop the redirect ,we''ll get a personal experience with it.

Reset the HOSTS file
As this infection also changes your Windows HOSTS file, we want to replace this file with the default version for your operating system.
Some types of malware will alter the HOSTS file as part of its infection. Please follow the instructions provided in How do I reset the hosts file back to the default?

To reset the hosts file automatically,go HERE click the Posted Image button. Then just follow the prompts in the Fix it wizard.


OR
Click Run in the File Download dialog box or save MicrosoftFixit50267.msi to your Desktop and double-click on it to run. Then just follow the promots in the Fix it wizard.

Are you on a router and are others on it,if so do they redirect also?

Your router is hijacked by trojan DNS-hijacker.

  • Please read this: Malware Silently Alters Wireless Router Settings

  • Then reset your router to it's factory default settings:

    "If your machine has been infected by one of these Zlob/DNSchanger Trojans, and your router settings have been altered, I would strongly recommend that you reset the router to its default configuration. Usually, this can be done by inserting something tiny like a paper clip end or pencil tip into a small hole labeled "reset" located on the back of the router. Press and hold down the small button inside until the lights on the front of the router blink off and then on again (usually about 10 seconds)"


  • This is the difficult part.
    First get to the routers server. To do that open Internet Explorer and type http:\\192.168.1.1 in the address bar and click Enter. You get the log in window.
    Fill in the password you have already found and you will get the configuration page.
    Configure the router to allow you to connect to your ISP server. In some routers it is done by a setup wizard. But you have to fill in the log in password your ISP has initially given to you.
    You can also call your ISP if you don't have your initial password.
    Don't forget to change the routers default password and set a strong password. Note down the password and keep it somewhere for future reference.
