Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

When I search on google, many of the links are redirected clickfraudmanager.com It's fine if I enter the address in the address bar, but clicking a link will redirect. This happens when I use either Firefox or IE.

I found this other post on bleepingcomputer (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/lofiversion/index.php/t200128.html) and followed what they did.

So far have scanned my computer with:
-AVG 7.5

The programs found and removed instances of vundo/virtuamonde, so then i ran these two just in case:
-symantec vundo removal tool

I've downloaded hijackthis, but don't want to use it just yet as I don't know what I'm doing.

Now, after several scans by all of the above software, they all say my system is clean, but the redirects still come back. I've uninstalled and reinstalled firefox, but it's still happening.

I am using a Dell Vostro 200 w/ Windows XP SP2

Please help! Thanks again, I really appreciate it.

Please print out and follow these instructions: "How to use SDFix". <- This program is for Windows 2000/XP ONLY.
When using this tool, you must use the Administrator's account or an account with "Administrative rights"
  • Disconnect from the Internet and temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any real time protection programs before performing a scan.
  • When done, the SDFix report log will open in notepad and automatically be saved in the SDFix folder as Report.txt.
  • If SDFix is unable to run after rebooting from Safe Mode, run SDFix in either Mode, and type F, then press Enter for it to finish the final stage and produce the report.
  • Please copy and paste the contents of Report.txt in your next reply.
  • Be sure to renable you anti-virus and and other security programs before connecting to the Internet.
-- If the computer has been infected with the VirusAlert! malware warning from the clock and the Start Menu icons or drives are not visible, open the SDFix folder, right-click on either the XP_VirusAlert_Repair.inf or W2K VirusAlert_Repair.inf (depending on your version of Windows) and select Install from the Context menu. Then reboot to apply the changes.

Then please update and rerun malwarebytes. Post a fresh log.
