Apparently I posted this in the wrong area before (even though I read the directions), so let's try again.

Hi Folks,

I have a Dell Inspiron 1100 running an Intel Celeron processor. I have Windows XP.

With the April Fool's Day virus scare, my husband attempted to "protect" the computer by installing an anti-virus program (he doesn't know which one) on the computer. When he realized what was going on, he uninstalled it. However, it left a trace of malware on there.

Now everytime we search on Google, the results come up fine. However, when I click on the result, it seems to get hijacked. I get redirected to other sites, most of them having nothing to do with the thing I searched for in the first place. Most of the root redirect addresses include "searchinworldx" or "searchinworldy" before redirecting to the other sites.

I have run AdAware, Spybot S&D, and scanned with HouseCall as well as my Avast antivirus. I can't seem to come up with anything.

Here is the HijackThis log:

Hi Moselle,

Welcome to BC HijackThis forum. I am farbar. I am going to assist you with your problem.

Please refrain from making any changes to your system (updating Windows, installing applications, removing files, etc.) from now on as it might prolong handling your log and make the job for both of us more difficult.
  • Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from MajorGeeks
    • Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
    • Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
    • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
    • Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Quick Scan", then click Scan.
    • The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
    • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
    • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
    • When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart.(See Extra Note)
    • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
    • Copy&Paste the MBAM log.
    Extra Note:
    If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove,you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts,click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process,if asked to restart the computer,please do so immediately.


  • To get an idea about the current condition of you computer download random's system information tool (RSIT) by random/random from here and save it to your desktop.
    • Double click on RSIT.exe to run RSIT.
    • Set the list of files/folders created to 3 Months and click Continue at the disclaimer screen.
    • Once it has finished, two logs will open. Please post the contents of both log.txt (<<will be maximized) and info.txt (<<will be minimized).

      Note 1: If you have difficulty finding the logs, the logs are in this folder: C:\rsit

      Note 2: The tool takes not more than one minute to scan the system.
You might want to save this page on your favorites, so you can find it again when you return.
