I'm trying to clean up a friends PC. It was doing some major redirects when running internet explorer. I think I have gotten past some of the issues by removing some HOST entries using HJT, but I wanted to post my log to see if it looks clean, or do I still have some work to do. Things I have done already:

Spybot S&D
Ad-Aware
Panda Online scan
Eset Online
SuperAntiSpyware
MS Malicious Software Removal

The computer is protected (Ha!) with !Yahoo Online Protection (freebie with DSL service), that's a Norton/Symantec product.

None of the above scans did any good on the re-directs, those were only solved by HJT by getting rid of the HOSTS entries. So, here's my LOG as of right now: Thanks for any help you can offer, I doubt I got everything clean yet.

Welcome to the BleepingComputer HijackThis Logs and Analysis forum Tom De
My name is Richie and i'll be helping you to fix your problems.

Download Fixwareout from the link below:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/files/lonny/Fixwareout.exe
Save it to your desktop and run it.
Click Next,then Install,make sure "Run fixit" is checked and click Finish.
The fix will begin,follow the prompts.
Your firewall may give an alert,(because this tool will download an additional file from the internet),please don't let your firewall block it,allow it instead.
Then you will be asked to reboot your computer,please do so.
Your system may take longer than usual to load,this is normal.
After the reboot post the contents of the logfile C:\fixwareout\report.txt in your next reply.
Please Note:
Only do the following if you have connection problems after performing the above steps:
Go to Start>Control Panel,and choose 'Network Connections'.
Then right click on your default connection,usually 'Local Area Connection' or 'Dial-up Connection' if you are using Dial-up,then left click on 'Properties'.
Double-click on the 'Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)' item and select the radio button that says: 'Obtain DNS servers Automatically'.
Click OK twice,restart your computer.


If you have previously downloaded ComboFix,please delete that version now.
Warning
You should NOT use Combofix unless you have been instructed to do so by a Malware Removal Expert.
It is intended by its creator to be used under the guidance and supervision of an expert,NOT for private use.
Using this tool incorrectly could render your system/pc inoperable.

Now download Combofix by sUBs and save to your desktop.
Alternative Combofix download link HERE.
Note
It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop

Close any open browsers.
Double click on combofix.exe and follow the prompts.
When it's finished it will produce a log.
Post the entire contents of C:\ComboFix.txt into your next reply.
Note
Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running.
That may cause the program to freeze/hang.

Do NOT post the ComboFix-quarantined-files.txt unless I ask.
Note
In case your Antivirus or any other realtime scanner is displaying an alert after you downloaded Combofix or while you use Combofix,please disable your scanner and redownload Combofix again.
Some scanners may see some combofix related components as suspicious and block or delete them while there's nothing wrong with them.

Also post a new Hijackthis log please.

Hello Richie,

Thanks for offering to help. Sorry it took me a while to get back here, things got a bit busy after my post.

My friends were a bit deparate to get their computer back, so when I got to the point I could get on the internet without terrible things happening, I let the have it back. Unfortunately, that was before your post. Would it be possible to look over the log I did post on my first posting, to see if there was something I might have missed? I sure would appreciate it. If you see something that might cause the problems to return, perhaps I can talk them through the issue over the phone (they live quite some distance from me). Thanks again for any advice you can offer.

Tom

If possible the best thing to do is get the pc back,rescan with Hijackthis and post a new log into this topic.
