I can find no information on Todiada. Is this harming my computer?

Thanks,
Mark

In order to assist you effectively and identify the offending malware, we need more specific information.
Please read Before you post about a problem, Some simple guidelines, then reply back here.

I wasn't able to find anything on it either. Without a file specified or further information, its difficult to determine what the service was related to. What program alerted you to this service?

I first found out about it in the services tab of msconfig. It is also in Hijack This! log which was generated in safe mode. There is zero info on it other than the name and nothing online (that is indexed by google anyway). Weird.

What OS (Win 2K, XPsp1, XPsp2, Vista) are you using?
For example running HJT on a 64-bit machine may show entries which indicate (file missing) when that is NOT the case.

What HijackThis version do you have?

The entry is probably related to a malware remnant after the actual file was removed by an anti-virus or anti-malware scan. It can be fixed, however, the problem with many types of malware is that they are used to download more malicious files which may not have been detected. Rootkits often install a service to provide a means of hiding infection components.

Are you having any specific issues, signs of infection?
What anti-malware scans have you performed recently?

Yes. I have a redirect to advertising sites when I click on any result in Google (although it doesn't happen every time). Also, two of my antispyware titles can't update themselves (AVG and SuperAntiSpyware) because their sites are blocked. Windows firewall is on and the sites are listed as exceptions.

I regularily use those two as well as Anti Malware and Spybot.

Rescan again with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (Quick Scan) in normal mode. Check for database definition updates through the program's interface (preferable method) or manually download the definition updates and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install before scanning.Mbam-rules.exe is not updated daily. Another way to get the most current database definitions if you're having problems updating, is to install MBAM on a clean computer, launch the program, update through MBAM's interface, copy the definitions (rules.ref) to a USB stick or CD and transfer that file to the infected machine. Copy rules.ref to the location indicated for your operating system. If you cannot see the folder, then you may have to Reconfigure Windows to show it.
  • XP: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Vista: C:\Documents and Settings\Users\All Users\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
Don't forgot to reboot afterwards. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. When done, click the Logs tab and copy/paste the contents of the new report in your next reply.

Looks like MBAM did not find the culprit so I expect you still are unable to connect to AVG and SAS web sites to perform updates. Is that correct?

That is correct.

I was able to update SuperAntiSpyware though. So I rebooted my computer to my second OS (I have XP on two separate drives) and did a complete scan of the infected drive. It didn't find anything.

Disinfection will probably require the use of more powerful tools than we recommend in this forum. Before that can be done you will need you to create and post a DDS/HijackThis log for further investigation.

Please read the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". If you cannot complete a step, then skip it and continue with the next. In Step 6 there are instructions for downloading and running DDS which will create a Pseudo HJT Report as part of its log.

When you have done that, post your log in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix. After doing this, we would appreciate if you post a link to your log back here so we know that your getting help from the HJT Team.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your post or make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

I have done that because of another problem I've been having - perhaps they are related.

Here is the log: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/220907/automatically-redirected-to-advertising-sites-from-google-search-results/

Now that your log is posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic until you are cleared by the HJT Team. If you still need assistance after your log has been reviewed and you have been cleared, please PM me or another moderator and we will re-open this topic.

Good luck with your log.
