This is my first time posting here, and second attempt of making some sense of HJT.
Here's my problem:

Certain sites have been redirecting to what I suspect is a hijacking website. I saw a post here from 2005 that was similar, but the solution didn't fit with my HJT log results.
The first sites to do this to me were from my gaming clan at "www.special-ops.us". They would load, but as soon as it finished loading, it would suddenly redirect to "http://www.atspace.com/dedicated-web-server-hosting-domain-articles-news/web_hosting.html". I could stop the loading and it would stay at the special-ops website. Now the spec-ops website isn't redirecting anymore, but Photobucket is! It won't even load the webpage, it just jumps immediately to "http://www.atspace.com/dedicated-web-server-hosting-domain-articles-news/web_hosting.html"!
I should note this occurs both on Firefox and on IE, though I use Firefox primarily. Can someone please help?
If it helps, here's my current HJT log:

Update: Last night, I ran Windows in safe mode so I could run CCleaner and run Spybot, CWShredder, SuperAntiSpyware, and MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware. And then scheduled a boot-time scan with Avast! Anti-virus. Of course, I updated the definitions for each of those programs before I loaded into safe mode, and ran a complete scan if it was available instead of quick scans.

CWShredder found: one object and removed it (It was really late, though, and unfortunately I didn't document what it was)
Spybot found: "Virtumonde.generic" and "Microsoft.WindowsSecurityCenter.AntivirusOverride" and removed them. (though the latter sounds like a false positive)
SuperAntiSpyware found: "Adware.Vundo Variant/Rel" in my registry as well as a bunch of tracking cookies, and removed them.
MBAM found: nothing..
Avast! found: 3 Horst-AAF Trojans and 3 TratBHO Trojans, and quarantined them.

However, I tested my system out today after work, and I'm still getting redirected on Photobucket.com and Special-Ops.us !
So despite finding all those baddies, my system is still infected.

Hello brimstone.storms,


Apologize for the delay in response we get overwhelmed at times but we are trying our best to keep up.
If you have since resolved the original problem you were having would appreciate you letting us know If not please perform the following below so I can have a look at the current condition of your machine.

Thanks and again sorry for the delay.

Please download Deckard's System Scanner (DSS) and save to your Desktop.
alternate download site

DSS will do the following:
  • Create a new System Restore point in Windows XP and Vista.
  • Clean your Temporary Files, Downloaded Program Files, Internet Cache Files, and empty the Recycle Bin on all drives.
  • Check some important areas of your system and produce a report for an analyst to review.
  • Automatically run HijackThis. It will also install and place a shortcut to HijackThis on your desktop if you do not already have it installed. So if HijackThis is not installed and DSS prompts you to download it, please answer yes.
You must be logged onto an account with administrator privileges when using.
  • Close all applications and windows.
  • Double-click on dss.exe to run it and follow the prompts.
  • If your anti-virus or firewall complains, please allow this script to run as it is not
    malicious.
  • When the scan is complete, two text files will open in Notepad:
    • main.txt <- this one will be maximized
    • extra.txt <- this one will be minimized
  • If not, they both can be found in the C:\Deckard\System Scanner folder.
  • Please copy (Ctrl+C) and paste (Ctrl+V) the contents of main.txt and extra.txt in your next reply.
-- When running DSS, some firewalls may warn that it is trying to access the Internet especially if your asked to download the most current version of HijackThis. Please ensure that you allow it permission to do so.
-- If you get a warning from your anti-virus while DSS is scanning, please allow DSS to continue as the scan is not harmful.



Next
Please do a scan with Kaspersky Online Scanner

Note: If you are using Windows Vista, open your browser by right-clicking on its icon and select 'Run as administrator' to perform this scan.

Click on the Accept button and install any components it needs.
  • The program will install and then begin downloading the latest definition files.
  • After the files have been downloaded on the left side of the page in the Scan section select My Computer
  • This will start the program and scan your system.
  • The scan will take a while, so be patient and let it run.
  • Once the scan is complete, click on View scan report
  • Now, click on the Save Report as button.
  • Save the file to your desktop.
  • Copy and paste that information in your next post.

No worries about the delay. I've worked tech support before, I know how it goes. Especially on a forum.

As for the issue, it was resolved between my last post and your post. I went back into safe mode and repeated the steps I took in my 2nd post and instead of restarting right away, I ran the scans a couple more times and whatever bug there was in my system, one of those programs caught it and killed it. I'm hijacker free now.
