Whenever I click on a link (usually from google searching), I get taken to ad sites like Btcar and monster(something).

My Trend Micro Antivirus finds Zlob and identifies registry values/keys -- containing kdail.exe and kdid -- which keep reapearring even after a manual delete.

Spybot, McAfee Stinger, Trend Micro -- others -- don't seem to permanently remove Zlob from my desktop machine (running Windows 2000 Professional).

Very annoying bug ... please, help!

I completed the steps as outlined.

I'm not sure if I'm Zlob free, yet.

Here's the scan log as requested. Could these files have caused my google search redirects?

I'm not sure if I'm Zlob free, yet

What makes you say that? Are you still getting signs of the infection from any scans?

Please follow the the instructions for using Vundofix in BC's self-help tutorial: "How To Remove Vundo/Winfixer Infection".

After running VundoFix, a text file named vundofix.txt will have automatically been saved to the root of the system drive, usually at C:\vundofix.txt. Please copy & paste the contents of that text file into your next reply.

If your still being redirected, please let me know where to but do not post active links.

Hi,

VunduFix says my PC is clean.

I am still being redirected to btcar.com, to kolmix.com, to monstermarketplace.com.

Also, should I post a log from HijackThis scan? If so, where does that post go?

Thanks

Post your log in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. Please include the top portion of the HijackThis log that lists version information. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix. After doing this, we would appreciate if you post a link to your log back here so we know that your getting help from the HJT Team.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your post or make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Thanks.

I'll post my log from HijackThis as you specify.

I reran Spybot and again found Zlob DNS Changer in 2 registry values (ending with kdid in one and with kdail.exe in the other). These are the 2 entries I have tried repeatedly to delete manually (not through any software), but they instantly reappear.

I'll let you know what the HJT Team says.

Any other suggestions while I wait?

Any other suggestions while I wait?

After posting a log you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

The HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Let me know when it has been posted so I can close this thread to avoid confusion.

OK. It's posted for the HJT Team. So we can close this topic out ... and thanks for all your help getting me started on this forum ... it's invaluable ... Happy New Year!

I will not try anything else until I hear from the HJT Team. I'll be patient.

Best Regards,
