I am running windows Vista Business using Internet Explorer which have no problem until few days ago.
Forgot what really happen, but all I know, now everytime I use search engine (Yahoo or Google), I can search, but when clicking on one of the results, always redirected to some advertising page.
Futhermore, my firewall always get turns off automaticall whenever I log in to windows, so I need to manually turn it back on everytime.
I have also installed AVG (free version), done manual update (i.e. download the update file and install manually) because the automatic update always fail, scan whole computer, and got a few infections detected and healed. Unfortunately, this doesn't solve the issue.
Then I tried many other things such as:
- Using combofix: resulted in blue screen dump, windows then restore the system, no log file whatsoever
- Installing HiJack This, which didn't work at all (double click, ask whether I want to unzip, then error message)
- mbam also similar situation, managed to install, but double click on the progrm to start, but nothing happened
Now it seems that the virus is getting worse, creating pop-ups about every 10 minutes of browsing.
Really appreciate your kind assistance.
