Hi there. I'm not sure exactly what's going on with this. I have noticed in the past day or two (though it may have been longer), that occasionally clicking links after a google search will redirect the link to some random ad site. Before it redirects, it seems to come from "poiskin.ru". I googled this and found several recent topics asking about it but no helpful solutions.

It is not every link, and it seems to come and go. It seems to be less common now than it was before.

I ran a full scan of Trend Micro Pc Cillin and it found nothing. I consulted a guy who knows a lot about this stuff, I let him use a PC share tool (so he can control my mouse basically). He checked a couple things and said it probably didn't pick it up because it's so minor. He said it is just annoying and is no threat.

He told me to download avast!, and I did, and that found 12 threats, and deleted them all. However I still get the redirects occasionally. I did try Malware Bytes but I realized I was using an old version. I updated it and am running it now, and it has currently found one thing so far.

I'm pretty sure this is unrelated to any "Conficker" virus and is not harmful but it's just annoying and nothing seems to pick it up.

Please post the Malwarebytes log when the scan is finished.

Sure thing. It's still going. It takes so long to do the full scan x_x

The other thing is this Win32 Troj Generic that keeps showing up. That was evident in the 12 things detected by avast. Avast just detected it again. It deletes it, then it keeps coming back. I'm not sure how.

here's the log. I will take action but I had to save the log before I did otherwise it won't work.

Particularly interesting is the one that seems to be in a System Restore file. I did try that and it wasn't working. Also that registry key one is probably the culprit.

That Trojan.TDSS can be quite nasty and your online passwords may have been compromised.

If you’re clean, you should create a new Restore Point to prevent possible re-infection from an old one.

Go Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click System Restore. Choose the radio button marked Create a Restore Point on the first screen then click Next. Give the Restore Point a name and then click Create. Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point. Go Start > Run and type: "Cleanmgr" (without the quotes). Click Ok > More Options tab > Clean Up in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.

Also, go Start > Control Panel and double-click Add or Remove Programs. Post back and report any Java entries that you have.

i have no idea and I'm still getting the poiskin crap even though I've deleted so much spyware and viruses and stuff

I honestly think it's just a glitch with google or something. There is nothing else. I've deleted every piece of malware that exists.

Please print out and follow these instructions: "How to use SDFix". This program is for Windows 2000/XP ONLY.
When using this tool, you must use the Administrator's account or an account with "Administrative rights"
  • Disconnect from the Internet and temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any real time protection programs before performing a scan.
  • When done, the SDFix report log will open in notepad and automatically be saved in the SDFix folder as Report.txt.
  • If SDFix is unable to run after rebooting from Safe Mode, run SDFix in either Mode, and type F, then press Enter for it to finish the final stage and produce the report.
  • Please copy and paste the contents of Report.txt in your next reply.
  • Be sure to renable you anti-virus and and other security programs before connecting to the Internet.
-- If the computer has been infected with the VirusAlert! malware warning from the clock and the Start Menu icons or drives are not visible, open the SDFix folder, right-click on either the XP_VirusAlert_Repair.inf or W2K VirusAlert_Repair.inf (depending on your version of Windows) and select Install from the Context menu. Then reboot to apply the changes.
