Hi, I have problems with Google redirects. It redirects to sites like 'shopica.com', but only once. When I click on the link again, it goes to the correct site. Redirects happen in both IE and FF. I ran AdAware, MalwareBytes and Spybot, but they did not find anything. HijackThis does not show anything immediately obvious to me, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

Sorry, I am not trying to bump this. Just have an update:

I updated Malware Bytes and ran again. This time it found trojan.vundo.v, which it supposedly quarantined and cleaned up.

Also, I am running XP.

The redirects continue though... :thumbsup:

Did you follow these directions for MBAM, you don't have teatimer running do you? It's part of spybot.

Please post the MBAM log

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (v1.36) and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
If you have a previous version of MBAM, remove it via Add/Remove Programs and download a fresh copy.
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself.
  • Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install. Alternatively, you can update through MBAM's interface from a clean computer, copy the definitions (rules.ref) located in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from that system to a usb stick or CD and then copy it to the infected machine.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

Thanks for the reply. I have a confession to make: I read the posts and ran GooredFix and it seems to have taken care of the problem.

Is there anything else I should do to make I'm clean?

I had teatimer running, but disabled it. My MalwareBytes is fully updated. Here is the log:

It's one of the safer tools, there's nothing wrong with selfhelp, we need all the help we can get.

Let's run an online virus scan called Kaspersky or KAV for short, from
http://www.kaspersky.com/kos/eng/partner/d...kavwebscan.html
using Internet Explorer.

Please disable your resident Antivirus before performing the scan and re-enable it afterward.

1. At the main page. Press on "Accept". After reading the contents.
2. At the next window Select Update. Allow the Database to update.
Note: If prompted to run or update your Java, then follow the prompts to do so. Kaspersky requires Java to run.
3. Once the Database has finished, under the Scan icon Select My Computer to start the scan. The scan may take a few minutes to complete.
4. Select Scan Report.
5. If any threats were found they will appear in the report
6. Select "Save error report as"
Then in the file name just type in kaspersky
Under "save as type" select text .txt
Save it to your Desktop.

Please post the KAV scan report in your next reply.
