Posted 12 February 2009 - 04:39 PM

I am helping a friend and I have eliminated all of their various infections and such except something keeps forcing the browser to searches via VMN.NET's website. I know matchmaker can cause this but I dont see it in the system. I have run SpyBot S&D, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (MBAM) and the latest commercial release of AVG 8 (my friend had this preinstalled and paid for, we updated to the latest versions and found nothing ... but SB & MBAM foundand eliminated a lot of stuff).

Below is the DDS (pseudo hjt) scan the forum requested. I have also attached an official HJT (latest version) if needed.

DDS LOG:
