EDIT: This problem has been resolved, please feel free to close this topic.

Huzzah, a forum for fixing these nasty little infections that pop up and like to destroy my way of life every other year.

So, here's the backstory as to what's happened to me. I downloaded a program from a site which claimed to be an eBook, and was an EXE of all things. I normally know to stay away from those, but being a desperate college student writing papers, I can be desperate at times.

Now, I usually have a contingency plan for things like this, AKA copying the program to my flash drive after a virus sweep, and taking it over to an old junker computer I keep around specifically for purposes of testing for viruses in programs. However, this time my flash drive ended up with an autorun.inf file on it after installing said program, which turned out to be bull as was expected.

So, popping the drive back into my other computer, Avast pops up a warning, and I have it delete said file. However, upon going to my C:\ drive (or any other for that matter) I ended up being told that <Insert inanely long recycle bin entry here> was inaccessible. Joy. I right clicked and went to Explore to examine the contents of the drive, and what do I find but an autorun.inf file?

I got all of 'em cleared off my partitions and USB devices, and they don't seem (key word there) to be reinstalling themselves onto any partitions/drives.

After all that, I tried getting on Firefox to check the Avast entry, and it was refusing to open any pages. I checked PeerGuardian 2, which was throwing up malware exploit blocks, about two to three a second. At some point it trickled down and I was able to access Google and look up the info I needed.

I decided to try Spybot S&D, but it wouldn't open for some reason. Then I tried MBAM, same result. Whatever this is seems to be blocking any attempt to open antispyware or antimalware programs. In addition, when searching for the problem destination IPs PG2 was giving me ( and I came across this forum and realized that Firefox was hanging a bit before actually opening pages. Lo and behold, every so often it comes up with a load of redirects to about 5 sites before deciding to stop on one.

After renaming Malwarebytes's Anti-Malware utility, I got it running and removed a trojan by the name of gaopdxcounter that was hanging out in C:\WINDOWS\system32\ earlier. In addition, I found my DNS servers had been messed with, so I set them manually in my network settings, to those of OpenDNS.

Now, the browser hijacks only seem to happen when I hit any site from google. Firefox will hang for about three seconds before either sending me where I wanted to go or trying to send me to a spam/porn/popup site.

I'm not having any problems with computer speed at the moment, and am currently booted into Safe Mode with Networking on WinXP Pro with SP2 installed.
