Working on a friend's computer, and I have the feeling it's not clean. Ran both spybot and adaware from safemode, and manually deleted unwanted registry keys. All signs say the computer is clean, but if I turn on Zona Alarm (on high internet zone security) web browsing goes crazy -- firefox can access most sites, but "can't find" search engines (unless I use ip address as url) and IE rederects google.com requests to yahoo.com (among other weird behavior).

I looked through the HOSTS file and DNS settings and they seem to be fine, and I suspect it's malware related since the problems occur when I turn on the firewall, otherwise everything works fine.

Hello r3xt3r and welcome to the BC forums. After reviewing your log I see no signs of viruses or malware at this time. The log is clean.

it would make sense that the searches are going through Yahoo since all of the search settings point there. See the various settings in the R0/R1 lines. yahoo should be the search engine that is used.

Getting strange results when ZA is set to high Security is not anything new with ZA. Check out their forum boards for similar problems from other users. for Internet access just set the settings to Medium.


I do not respond to PM's requesting help. That's what the forums are here for. Please use them so that others may benefit from your questions and the responses you receive.
