HI,

WINDOWS XP RUNNING

WHEN I SEARCHED IN YAHOO, WENT TO SOME MEDICAL SITE AND INSTANT VIRUSES DETECTED WHICH WERE SUPPOSEDLY QUARANTINED AND CURED WITH E-TRUST ANTIVIRUS?????

NOW WHEN SEARCHING, GET REDIRECTED TO OTHER SITES I.E. MONSTERMARKET.COM, ETC.

DOWNLOADED MOZILLA BROWSER AND STILL HAPPENING.

HAD ADWARE AND SPYBOT INSTALLED BEFORE AND UPDATED AND RAN SCANS AND ELIMINATED ?? CULPRITS. DID NOT WORK.

NOT ABLE TO DOWNLOAD ANY OTHER VIRUS PROTECTION DOWNLOADS, GET KICKED OUT.

DOWNLOADED CLAMWIN TO FLASH DRIVER AND WAS ABLE TO INSTALL THAT WAY. RAN SCAN IN SAFE MODE, HAD TROJANS, ELIMINATED THESE. STILL SAME PROBLEMS. RAN SPYBOT AGAIN. STILL NOT RESOLVED.

CANNOT RUN HIJACK THIS SCAN, GET BOOTED OUT. RENAMED IT AND STILL GOT BOOTED OUT. CANNOT GO INTO ANY ANTISPYWARE OR ANTIVIRUS WEBSITE WITHOUT GETTING BOOTED OUT. I AM DOING THIS FROM ANOTHER COMPUTER.

PLEASE - ANY SUGGESTIONS? THANKS!

Try installing SAS the same way as you did ClamWin.
Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

If you are successful, let us know what it identifies. If you can give the name of the malware or file locations the other programs found we might be able to point you to another tool.

The malware has probably changed your hosts file.

Download: hosts.zip [right-click - Select: Save Target As] [Updated 07-31-07]

http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.zip

This download includes a simple batch file (mvps.bat) that will rename the existing HOSTS file to HOSTS.MVP then copy the included updated HOSTS file to the proper location. For more information please see the readme.txt included in the download.
