Firstly, apologies for beach of forum etiquette by posting my problem on someone else's thread, I can only plead ignorance.

For the last 2 weeks at least, my Google links have been redirected, via copy-book.com, to places various. I've looked on various forums and tried several Spyware and Malware removal programs.

I've tried both the method recommended by Quietman 7 and also the alternative from fireman4it, both sadly without success. The first method found only cookies; the second, despite finding DNS changer Trojans, did not cure the problem.

One recent effort, using a functional trial version of Counterspy uncovered all sorts of nasties, Hijackers, Backdoors and another Trojan, but despite removing all of them, the problem remains.

My last attempt, using Spybot S&D, found Spyhunter, Right Media, Media Plex and Virtumonde. I removed all those and the problem continues.

As an aside, the F8 method for safe mode doesn't seem to work for me, neither holding down nor repeated presses (my PC doesn't beep on booting). I had to use the MS Config method but did note the warnings in other threads.

I'm running a copy of XP Pro and my Antivirus program is ESET Nod 32 which is supposed to stop most types of infiltrations. A full system scan using that found nothing!!

I'd appreciate any advice and will watch this thread.................I'm just hoping it won't have to be a disk rebuild. I've tried a System Restore as far back as I can but still no luck.

Thanks for the advice, boopme; I ran SD Fix as per the instructions but the problem persists. The log is as follows:

For general information, although I ran SD Fix in Safe Mode as per the guide, when I booted back into normal mode it performed the "Final" checks following the line I've highlighted in red and then displayed the log in notepad.

I'll be grateful for any more ideas from members.

Many thanks.

there's a newer zlob dnschanger infection that gets your router, see if this applies to you

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
