Hello,
I seem to have a browser hijack problem that redirects the browser when I click on the search results from Google and other search engines. If I click BACK on the browser, I (usually) get to the page I was expecting. The redirect is to a different, apparently random and innocuous site each time.
Another symptom that may or may not have the same cause: The browsers are also blocked from access to www.bleepingcomputer.com - I am writing this from a second computer. I figure if the malware didn't want me to go to this site, that it is a good place to start.
A third symptom that may or may not be related is that Windows updates do not seem to install themselves now. For the past week when Windows shuts down it attempts to install an 'important update' (I have automatic updates activated). The computer shuts down normally, but the next time I start up, a few minutes after start up there is another (or the same) update ready to be installed.
The hijack problem occurs with IE, Firefox, Google Chrome and Safari. I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and Google Chrome, but that did not help. I installed Safari AFTER the infection, and the same problem exists. I ran CCleaner, but that fixed nothing.
If I run Firefox in SAFE mode or IE in high security mode, then I do NOT see the hijacks from the search pages. However, access to www.bleepingcompter.com is still blocked in all browsers, whether in regular mode or safe mode.
I am running Windows XP with SP3. As mentioned, updates from Microsoft is set for automatic.
I have Symantec Enpoint Protection installed. Also Adaware and Spybot. Scans by these programs do not show any infections (there were the usual things picked up by Spybot, but they were fixed and the system appears clean, according to Spybot).
After the infection I installed Windows Defender, but its scanned came up clean.
Today I installed Malwarebytes - it detected and cleaned a trogan (something like Daeolon), but that did not solve any of the problems.
So, I have reached the limit of my knowledge and look to you for help.

Thanks - phytoman

Hi,

Please download DaonolFix from the link below and save it to your Desktop
Download Mirror #1
  • Double-click DaonolFix.exe to run it.
  • Select 1. Find Daonol (no fix) by typing 1 and pressing Enter.
  • You will see a lot of files being listed - don't worry, they are just being scanned.
  • A log will open, please post the contents of that log in your next reply (it can also be found on your desktop, called DaonolFix.txt).
Download ComboFix by sUBs from here or here

Note: If you already have a copy of ComboFix on your system it is essential that you delete it before downloading this copy.

**Save it to your desktop**

We need to disable one or more of your security programs so that they do not interfere with ComboFix.

Right click on the icon in the taskbar notification area & select "Disable Symantec EndPoint Protection".

Posted Image

Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts. If you are prompted to install the Recovery Console I recommend you go ahead and hit yes.
When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Please save that log to post in your next reply along with a fresh HJT log

Notes:
  • Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running. That may cause it to stall.
  • ComboFix may reset a number of Internet Explorer's settings, including making I-E the default browser.
  • Combofix prevents autorun of ALL CD, floppy and USB devices to assist with malware removal & increase security. If this is an issue or makes it difficult for you - please let me know.
  • ComboFix disconnects your machine from the internet when it runs. This connection should be automatically restored when ComboFix completes its run. If ComboFix runs into difficulty and terminates prematurely, the connection can be manually restored by restarting your machine.
Thanks.
