While using my laptop a couple of days ago, I noticed that my google search results page, were redirecting me to different sites, after FireFox was abruptly restarted while performing a search (I can sometimes reach the intended site by clicking the back button). This started happening in all my user accounts. First FireFox restarts and then all searches are redirected. I downloaded Ad-Aware and didn't find anything but a few tracking cookies that got deleted. I also run the Avast antivirus (which is been running for a couple of years) and I notice 2 thing; the Avast icon in the task bar is gone and I can't longer update Avast.(Ad-Aware can't be updated either) Never the least I runned avast at boot and while in the administrator account and it didn't find any viruses.

I Downloaded 7770finder. Which found a problem and I delete it. After that I was able to use google without being redirected for a few minutes, but then FireFox abruptly restarted again and the symptoms started right back.

I also downloades and run: Malwarebytes, SuperantySpyware (found: gec_logging[1].htm and gpl_lp[1].js - were removed) and unistalled and re-intalled Avast. I tried ComboFix but I can't make it run. It does not even let me acces this site I'm accessing this forum from a friends computer.

In Advance thanks for your Time!

Welcome to the BleepingComputer Forums.

Since it has been a few days since you scanned your computer with HijackThis, we will need a new HijackThis log. If you have not already downloaded Random's System Information Tool (RSIT), please download Random's System Information Tool (RSIT) by random/random which includes a HijackThis log and save it to your desktop. If you have RSIT already on your computer, please run it again.
  • Double click on RSIT.exe to run RSIT.
  • Click Continue at the disclaimer screen.
  • Please post the contents of log.txt.
Thank you for your patience.

Please see Preparation Guide for use before posting about your potential Malware problem.

If you have already posted this log at another forum or if you decide to seek help at another forum, please let us know. There is a shortage of helpers and taking the time of two volunteer helpers means that someone else may not be helped.

Please post your HijackThis log as a reply to this thread and not as an attachment. I am always leery of opening attachments so I always request that HijackThis logs are to be posted as a reply to the thread. I do not think that you are attaching anything scary but others may do so.

While we are working on your HijackThis log, please:
  • Reply to this thread; do not start another!
  • Do not make any changes on your computer during the cleaning process or download/add programs on your computer unless instructed to do so.
  • Do not run any other tool until instructed to do so!
  • Let me know if any of the links do not work or if any of the tools do not work.
  • Tell me about problems or symptoms that occur during the fix.
  • Do not run any other programs or open any other windows while doing a fix.
  • Ask any questions that you have regarding the fix(es), the infection(s), the performance of your computer, etc.
Thanks.
