Not sure how I got this trojan, but now everytime i do a google/msn/yahoo etc. search it simply redirects me to some random, unrelated site. I was told to download combofix but have not yet exectued the program, as I'm waiting for info from a helper. Once I have executed it, and it has run through fully, shall I just post the log I get into here? And will this combofix program actually manage to rid my pc of this trojan?

Any help=much thanks by me :D

Thanks :thumbsup:

(Had an old post on this but have to do a different one because the other wasn't explanitive enough)

I recently somehow managed to contract the trojan that brings up Windowsclick.com, quickly followed by a randomly generated (from what I can tell) site. Whenever I use a search engine such as google or Yahoo, once I click on one of the links that appears after the search, instead of being taken to the designated site a window appears with the url being 'Windowsclick.com'. Shortly after, a different site will take over. This prevents me from getting on pretty much all main sites.

I was wondering how I could fix this? It is really becoming a problem.

Much thanks for any help given :thumbsup:

Nick

Hello NIKRthelegend,

I have merged your latest topic to your previously existing topic which was moved from the HiJack This forum to the Am I Infected forum because no logs were posted.

PLEASE DO NOT NOW POST LOGS unless a log is specifically requested.

I was told to download combofix but have not yet exectued the program


Please do not run Combofix. ComboFix is an extremely powerful tool which should only be used when instructed to do so by someone who has been properly trained. ComboFix is intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert." It is NOT for private use. Please read Combofix's Disclaimer. Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again.

Running ComboFix by yourself is like performing open heart surgery on yourself--the scalpel and other surgical tools that is ComboFix is meant to be wielded by a highly trained surgeon only in emergencies or dire circumstances. When the surgeon is thru s/he leaves the room. So combofix should be removed from a system once it has accomplished its job, unlike an AV that is there to protect you from future infections.

. . . CF does make some alterations to your system if you run it. Even if you had no malware removed and run the uninstall command, some things may be different now on your system. I can tell you that one thing is that all your restore points will be flushed out and a new one created. There is a good reason to do that when you have a severe infection--but if you aren't infected you might need those restore points.

Read and abide by the disclaimer people. It's there for a reason. Stick to running and protecting yourself with a good AV and firewall and an anti-malware scanner or two. If you feel you need a second opinion, try running online scans. If you feel you might need surgery, come here to BC and ask for help--that is what we're here for.

That said, what is your operating system: Windows XP, Vista, etc.?

What browser are you using when these redirections occur?

What security programs do you have installed?

Are you experiencing other issues with your computer? Please be as specific as possible.
