OK a few days ago my gf was on mininova.org and spyware invaded the computer and would start fake scans with pop-ups. I booted to safe mode and ran avg to rid the problem. Well the pop-ups have stopped but when I use IE7 or firefox to type in a website or do a search then another window opens redirecting me to another website such as....shopzilla, bluemoutain and others. I installed spybot but that wont run. Ran vunddofix but it didnt find anything. I tried running combo fix but it wont open up. As a side note, check disk will not run also (the computer kept giving me the blue screen of death until I did some tweaking so now the computer boots up fine...system wise)......so any ideas?

Please download GooredFix by jpshortstuff and save it to your Desktop:
Download Mirror #1
Download Mirror #2
  • Double-click Goored.exe to run it.
  • A DOS like window will open.
  • Select option 2. Fix Goored by typing 2 and pressing Enter.
  • Make sure all instances of Firefox are closed at this point.
  • Type y at the prompt and press Enter again.
  • Notepad will open with a log called Goored.txt.
  • Please post the contents of Goored.txt in your next reply (a copy of the log will also be saved to your desktop).
Note: If you receive a message saying that GooredFix needs your system to be restarted, please close all applications and reboot your system. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you when usiing GooredFix. Please temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes. Click this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (v1.34) and save it to your desktop.

If you have a previous version of MBAM, remove it via Add/Remove Programs and download a fresh copy.
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself.
  • Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install. Alternatively, you can update through MBAM's interface from a clean computer, copy the definitions (rules.ref) located in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from that system to a usb stick or CD and then copy it to the infected machine.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.
  • Exit MBAM when done.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with disinfection. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes. Click this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled.
